Even If It Were A Dog, It Certainly Wouldn’t Be Shaggy

With several stories out there in the hands of editors waiting for acceptance or rejection (including one I spent six years writing) I find that my biggest problem isn’t anxiety, it’s figuring out how to write “and then I woke up” (or similar) a third of the way through the story I’m working on now without my readers thinking everything so far was just a dream. I’m horrified that the exact right phrase I need is a goddamn cliché. It’s things like this that drive writers to drink. That, and spending six years trying to get a ten page story just right.


Writer. Editor. Critic.
