I’m totally not in any position to be giving writing advice. That would be silly of me (both to think I’m in a position to give advice and to believe anyone’s actually reading this).
However, I know what I like out of literature and I’m more than comfortable to share those opinions, whether they’re requested or not. For more info on that, you might consult the people in my workshops or the staff of the Emerson Review. I get kind of excited.
Also, my story “Delightful Surprise” will be published at Every Day Fiction tomorrow. It’s going to be a wonderful day (filled with snow and maybe even a donut!).
