Get Published, Episode 9 – Special Episode

Hello Everyone.

It is with a certain amount of nervousness that I present this episode. You see, I’m away on holidays but I didn’t want to leave you hanging. What to do? I decided that maybe it was high time I put a piece of my fiction up.

The story is one that I wrote about 10 years ago. It was originally done to “study” the world I was creating for my first novel. I wanted to get an understanding of how the culture worked, gods and so on. It seemed pretty good when I finished it and I ultimately sent it out to a magazine. Thus it became my first rejection.

Recording it, I have realized just how far my writing has come. Still, it’s not a bad story despite some of the writing flaws that I found. Have a listen and let me know what you think.
