Marking a first for me is the publication of my short short story, “The Burning Glass,” in The First Line literary journal. It is a piece of flash fiction, the first piece of fiction that I have ever sold. While the payment was modest, it still gave me a much-needed confidence boost as I pursue creative writing projects alongside my regular nonfiction and technical work.
You can find the issue where my story appears here. I hope this will be the first in many more such publications to come.
