My 370 word story From Today is now up at the daily fiction/poetry zine Eunoia Review. Comments and crit always welcome!
I often have film-style dreams where I am a non-participating observer, just watching the action unfold rather than taking any part in it. This story was one of those dreams, so all I had to do was transcribe it and add Susie's commentary. It's a glorious thing when it comes that easy :-)
This was a 2011 story so won't count towards my Write 1 Sub 1 stats, but it's always a fantastic boost when a story comes out. Rejections may get the quantity, but acceptances will always triumph for quality. Psychological research says it takes at least 5 good things to balance out one negative, but I find it works the other way round in writing -- the thrill of an acceptance easily wipes out the disappointment of all the previous rejections. I guess that's what keeps us going.
Yay for positive reinforcement!
