A New Story

Today a story I wrote, an essay really, was published on The Rumpus. It was a pretty big deal, a pretty serious story, with feelings, which is something I usually or at least used to, purposely leave out of stories. Maybe I am growing up now and I can look directly at my feelings instead of hiding from them or pretending they aren’t there. Either way, the response people gave me was beyond amazing. I didn’t know what to expect but what I got were messages from long-lost friends and strangers and also close friends and work friends, all loving and awesome and supportive. So thank you to everyone and if you didn’t read it, here is Love Love Love. Go crazy.
