Today a literary review called The Punch Magazine, in India of all places, published my short story Digory, a delightful piece based off of a childhood story told to me by a friend. Digory was one of my earlier stories, written clear back in March of 2013, and to be honest I had come to the conclusion that it was going to be one that just eventually found its way into a self-published short story collection. A total of 30 literary reviews rejected it over the years until it finally got accepted.
Digory is one of those early stories that sometimes I think about going back and re-writing, though this is something I rarely do. I have a tendency to whip out a short story and then just move on without looking back. However, it's always been one of my favorites.
On the broader writing world this has been a whirlwind year. It's only just now June and I've already gotten seven short stories published, one shy of the number I got published in all of 2018. Be sure to explore some of the earlier stories, I've added two other new ones in just the past few weeks. On top of that, be on the look out for upcoming news on my second novel, Papaya.
As always, thank you everyone for all of your support.
