Horror quarterly, Dark Moon Digest, have picked up my 2,300 word tale, A Week in the Life Of… for publication later this year – a story relayed as a series of diary entries, about one man’s descent into madness.
I originally drafted this story when I was nineteen, which makes it the oldest idea I have had accepted. Granted it has been through a couple of redrafts since that time – and is now somewhat better than its initial incarnation – but the tone and narrative style has remained relatively unchanged throughout. It’s certainly pleasing to know that I was writing semi-decent stuff when I was a teenager, but it does make me wonder about the quality of the pieces I’m producing today!
Sounds very interesting.
