Writing Journal: First Time 'Published'!
My short-short story "Expectations" has been posted at Fifty-Word Stories. This is my first-ever accepted and published piece! (Click on the story title for the link, or click HERE).
At Fifty-Word Stories, each work posted by the site host Tim Sevenhuysen or a guest author has to be exactly 50 words -- not 49, not 51. It's a fun challenge to try and get a cohesive 'story' into such a tight constraint.
"Expectations" is a little different than the genre (mystery, science-fiction, or suspense/horror) stories I typically write, and while it's only a short micro-fiction piece, it's still a thrill to have something I wrote be accepted and posted.
It may be just a short baby-step, but at least it's a first step in the effort to become a published writer... ;^)
I hope you enjoy the piece -- as usual, any comments, suggestions, or other feedback is always welcome. Thanks for reading!
