Precipice



This past spring I worked on a short story based on the following quote:


"You never know what worse luck your bad luck has saved you from." 
Cormac McCarthy, "No Country for Old Men" 

It was short and sad, and I honestly feel like it's one of the best things I've ever written.  I submitted it to Write On Edge feeling sick and insecure.  I haven't done much publishing, and each submission completely terrifies me still.  But they accepted, and now I can see my words in print.  I can hold them in my hand.  I am a published author.

This is the first step in the direction I want the rest of my life to go.  This is the beginning.  This is my beginning, my precipice.  

Watch me leap.
