My first printed short story! So exciting. June 11, 2014 22:41 1 Comment
I know. It is uncool to be excited over your first print publication. I should be yawning. I should. But I'm not. I was excited when the lovely and talented editor of Black Heart Magazine, Laura Roberts, published my story "In a City White with Haze". And when she published "One Hep Kitten". And when Rose Red Review published "The Dalmatian Print Chair".
But Fourteen Hills actually invited me to read in San Francisco. A first.
I did not go. Transportation was out of my budget and theirs.
If I had read, though, I think I would have whipped up McCall's 3461 from 1951. The view with the long sleeves. I have long adored this pattern. I'm a pushover for great necklines, as you know.
And this gorgeous pattern can be yours. The Blue Gardenia has it in two sizes! Isn't that peachy?
