Write 1/Sub 1 check in: the one with a nice surprise

W1S1 2014 - Monthly ChallengeIt was a quiet week on the writing front, with work on the thing that is clearly not a short story, since I’m up to +10,000 words on it so far. This is a story that’s been flitting about in the back of my mind for at least four years and watching it all come out is really kind of fun. 

I didn’t submit anything this week. Nothing came back to me, so there’s that as well.

But I did get a nice surprise from Kazka Press. Editor Michael Haynes named The Burden of So Many Roses as one of his favorite stories from last year. I am enormously pleased he thought so highly of it. You can click through to read (or reread) it. I recommend it for those who had a lousy Valentine’s Day.

  1. Congratulations on that honor from Kazka press! A really fabulous story. I think it would be a perfect addition to a teen anthology. My teenager and I had a great conversation after reading it. 🙂

  2. Oh, Von, thanks so much! And very cool about the conversation.
