I’m a bit delayed in announcing this (here, at least), but “From A to Z” can now be read in the pages of Blink-Ink Issue #10.
If you’re not familiar with Blink-Ink, it’s a pretty nifty little publication. Each story is usually 50 words or less, and the cost of a subscription is only $5.00 a year. I subscribed last summer after discovering this publication and have enjoyed the issues I receive every couple of months.
I was quite delighted when Blink-Ink accepted my story “From A to Z” last fall. I didn’t announce that acceptance, as they asked I refrain from doing so until it was published.
“From A to Z” came to life from a longer work I tapped out on my iPod about the dangers of getting a tattoo while drunk. I took this longer flash piece and whittled it down to its absolute core and ta-da – “From A to Z” was born. It’s especially entertaining for me to write such a story as I’ve never been drunk and I’ve never gotten a tattoo!
On another note, May is approaching, and with it the Story-a-Day May challenge for which I am very excited. Unfortunately, I may be unable to post my stories here on my blog as this can rule out future publications in many instances. Still – we shall see. Maybe I’ll put a password on it and allow certain readers to continue reading them. I’ll address it when the month gets closer.
For now I am rejoicing in this 11th story published (10th in print).
