The Kenyon Review rejected the story I sent them and Crazyhorse sent an encouraging note.
I feel like there has been an uptick in encouraging notes lately, which has me wondering if my stories have improved or if they're the same but people pay attention to some of the stuff in my bio now. What if they're worse? Here are the feelings of self-doubt that never go away, served up with honesty.
I do, however, have a story in the new issue of New South available for order here. It's about being spooked in the South and alligators and boo hags and ex-boyfriends. I especially love the story by Lindsey Drager also in the issue. So much to admire. So grateful to be included.
