The short answer is, I’ve been busy, and my blog’s been my lowest priority.
The longer answer I’ll start on now, but let me just cut to the freakin’ chase already and say I RECEIVED MY FIRST PUBLICATION CREDIT! BOOYAH/HELL TO THE YES/EFFIN A/KICKIN A/ETC ETC. If you’re dying to go see it now now now, then check out my publication list. If you’d like to know more about Maudlin House (the journal that’s published me), check out my blog post about them and their social media on Twitter, Facebook, and more. If you read my piece, please click the appropriate reaction emoji on Maudlin House’s site below my piece and share the link for others to find on your social media; if the journal ever decided to publish a ‘Best Of’ anthology, my guess is page views and # of reactions would factor into their selection process. If you’d like to know about the last two months of my life, keep reading.
In no particular order:
I'm late to the party re-posting this, but there's me on the right working my first author event last week. Kate was so sweet to chat with me about my own writing afterwards. "You've got plenty of time," she said. "Keep writing!" I will. ・・・ #repost @ocls with @repostapp ・・・ Thank you Kate DiCamillo for visiting us tonight! It was a great event. We were so honored to host you!
So I’d like to throw down some info about the journal that accepted me, but I think it’s better to do it in its own separate post so that I can link to it easier. If you want to know more about Maudlin House, what it’s all about, what I think qualifies it as “legit” (yay! data!), and what makes it oh so cool, check out this post.
PS: Let me just take a breather to say that WOW if you’re here reading the end of this long ass blog post now, it must mean you really care about my life and my work, and that means so much to me. SO SO SO SO much. A million so’s and much’s. I can’t thank you enough for the support. But I can try. THANK YOU.
