Right on the heels of my recent hold notice at Withersin, I have just received an acceptance letter for my piece, “Retired.” The story will appear in the October issue of MagusZine.

I don’t want to jump the gun with this announcement because things might still change. In this business, I have learned that until the contract has been signed and the money is in hand, nothing is final.

With that said, I am allowing myself to smile and have a celebratory beer, which I will pour into a glass that shall be perceived as half full. For this night, I am an optimist.


*NOTE: Being from Pennsylvania, I drink Yuengling. But, you know, I’m too lazy to take a picture myself.
