Waiting has never my strong suit, but apparently that’s the name of the game. You pour your heart and soul into every piece you write, you send it out into the literary world, and then…you wait. I have several short stories out for submission, which sadly means I can’t post them here. But in the meantime, I continue to write and caffeinate. This combination is really the only thing that keeps my mind off the question of whether I’ll be adding a lovely little ‘A’, or a glaring red ‘R’ to my submission log. In this constant nervous state, I’ve produced two new flash fiction pieces – “If I Know a Song of Africa” and “Living Imagination”. I’m rather attached to the first, because its in reference to one of my favorite Karen Blixen quotes from Out of Africa (the book, not the film). It’s a marvelous little read, and I always snag another copy to share whenever one crosses my path. If you happen to discover this little gem in your own journey, I strongly suggest you give it a go!
