It’s been seven months since I last looked at this web page. Honestly, that’s far less time than I expected.
When I started writing at the beginning of this year, I had a very specific goal in mind. I wanted to have a story published in a SWFA qualifying “pro” science fiction market, and I wasn’t going to update this website until I had done it.
Well folks, we did it.
After countless hours of writing and editing (and over 100 rejections on 24 short stories), I’m incredibly pleased to announce that I’ll have stories appearing in Nature and Daily Science Fiction in the (hopefully) near future.
A tremendous thanks goes out to all the good people at Scribophile, who have helped refine these pieces (and teach me so much about writing, in general) as well as to my wonderful wife, who has put up with countless evenings of me hammering away at the keyboard to no avail.
I have so much to learn, and I know there will be many more rejections down the road, but a bit of validation is nice every once in a while. As soon as the pieces go out, I’ll post links to them here.
I can’t wait for you to read them!
Thanks for swinging by, but that’s all for today…I’ve got some writing to do!
