i've been absent for quite a while: writing, and bringing myself more in line with the things i'm now wanting. sometimes we find that what we thought we wanted is perhaps not what we need. in line with this, i'm trusting more and more that i am being given the experiences necessary for my growth, however jarring at times.
last october, i began a short story that lingered over the months, with periods of inactivity and frustration. by march, though, i'd received in some divine away, the very thing i needed to give the story what it required. just over a week after submitting it, i found out on monday that this story, "slighted," will appear in a forthcoming issue of the notable new letters. i'm thrilled!
