Today I heard from Bomb Magazine that they are not interested in the story I submitted to them. Onward!
There are two lovely pieces of news though:
1) I made it onto the list of the NewCity Lit 50 in Chicago, which is pretty much a dream, and then I got to meet a bunch of writers I've long admired at the party, as well as hanging out with some very dear friends!
2) I have a story, "Strange Loop," featured in the newest issue of Ninth Letter. It is a BEAUTIFUL object complete with lots of fluorescent orange ink inside, so you should really order yourself a copy.
