Just a brief update: the short horror story that I submitted to Thief has been accepted by the editorial committee. Yippee! Apparently, it is now being sent with the other accepted works to an illustrator, a process that takes about a month. I’ll let you all know details when it is published. All I will share with you now is the title: Eighteen Steps.
It’s funny. I’ve had published magazine articles and textbooks and even a critique of a Star Trek episode, but this little piece of fiction (just under 1,000 words) is probably the thing that excites me the most. Was this the same for any of you other writers out there? Is fiction somehow more personal?
