At the risk of sounding ametuer, today marks a huge event in my life as a writer.  The following link is to a poem I wrote a while back,  published by a gutsy poetry editor over at the Oustsider Writer’s Collective (OWC).

This is the first time my work has been published.  As an officially published writer, I’d like to thank you fan.   Couldn’t have gotten this far without your support.  May we both see many more published works.

Got my first rejection slip for Secondhand this afternoon!  A generic note from The Seattle Review on a sixth of a piece of paper that is obviously a photocopy of some “master rejection page”.  They were quick about it, too–response time was about half of the average wait from them.  Building this collect is going to be a blast!

The dastardly real world is still cutting deep into my writing time. However, I have been working on my next story. It’s still in it’s “crappy sentences and scattered notes on napkins” stage. Very exciting!
