I am very excited to announce that a story of mine was accepted to The Creative Truth, a poetry/flash fiction publication. “A History of My Life in Six Glasses” is now available!
You can download the whole Volume as a PDF for free here, or give them money for the print copy here.
Actually, it’s been available since August and I am just dumb. I submitted the story in July, received my acceptance then, and was told that publication would take place when the volume had enough pieces, so the publisher would let me know. Apparently the email got buried under my Mom’s Facebook Like notifications, because I never realized it was available. Earlier this week I thought ‘Hey, I ought to check on that,’ and was delighted to find I’d been accepted! YAY!
**** In Other News****
The big news is that the Army Corps of Engineers blocked the lease on the Dakota Access Pipeline. Although that’s great news, it’s also only the tip of the shitty iceberg (shitberg? GROSS) as apparently the DAPL intended to keep on drilling. It doesn’t seem that they are, but everyone, including the company, expects them to. Whether they still do seems to be up in the air.
Here’s some good news about the viewing habits of young people: More people in the 16-35 age bracket are watching Planet Earth 2 than any reality television. That is wonderful – I FUCKING LOVE Planet Earth and am super looking forward to season 2. I rewatched the whole series (it’s on Instant Watch!) — even the dreaded Polar Bear episode. You know, the one I swore I’d NEVER WATCH AGAIN. I had to return to the well, and I did. I’m not sorry. Although I did cry again.
This isn’t a new story, but I thought it was neat: a former CNN sales executive quit her job to help teach Malawi farmers about tech-sharing, so they can share their information with other people in the region.
And just for fun, here is The Rock singing “You’re Welcome,” from Moana.
I still haven’t seen it, but I’m going tonight (FINALLY) because I need a dose of cheerfulness, fun, and chicken wings at my favorite cinema grill.
Saturday night I have a holiday party, and Sunday I’m going to a wedding. So, full weekend ahead!
Have you got any weekend plans? Have you received any good news lately? Share it! I’d love to hear it!

Congratulations, Newly Published Author!
I plan to celebrate my birthday this weekend with fam, movies, and my favorite ice cream.
I went to see Moana with my niece. We loved it. I know you will too.
NICE!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! And thank you!
Those all sound like spectacular ways to celebrate! What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
Yes, I’m super looking forward to Moana. It sounds like perfect magic!
I have many faves. From Vanilla, to Moose Tracks, from Yogurt to Gelato. There are flavors I refuse to eat but if there’s chocolate or nuts in it,I’m on it.
As for Moana, you will like the chicken. Everybody loved that little skinny chicken.
Bwa ha ha, I will keep an eye out for the chicken then!
Enjoy your ice cream! I’m partial to B&J’s Phish Food or Cherry Garcia, or Publix Cookies N Cream!
Congrats on your acceptance!!! That’s awesome!
Thank you! I keep meaning to sit down and type out a long response to the writing group about how much I miss them and ironically, I haven’t had the time to do that, LOL. But I will try and do it tonight!
And read and commented on your story last night – love how it’s progressing! 😀
congrats on the acceptance! And what did you think of Moana?
Oh I LOVED Moana! So gorgeous to look at, and a great story! I didn’t find the songs super memorable except for ‘You’re Welcome’ but I usually need to hear something a few times for it to make an impression. But I would definitely recommend it.
