Writing in 2014, plus things up and down.

I did not really submit many new stories in 2014. The year had been a year of ups and downs, both emotionally and physically. Work was stressful and family – at times – compounded it, making it worse. I was becoming unhappy with work. That was the first half of the year. The second half saw me adjusting to a new work environment, and to more stress, finally culminating in my breast disease which also caused no small deal of consternation and anxiety. I was put on a strong course of medication. It took a while for me to get used to the side-effects.

Stories that did get published, in small and independent presses:

2. Walkabout, What Follows, edited by April Steenburgh.
