It’s been a while since I’ve posted here, and I really needed to for the last month and a half or so, so I’m finally getting around to it now. As of September 14, 2013, I’m a published author! A literary magazine called Meat for Tea published my short story Noriko’s Rock in volume 7 issue 3 of their magazine! Step one on my writing career has been successfully made, now I just need to take the next million or so steps… 🙂 In effect, I am no longer Raymond the unplublished want-to-be-writer, I am now Raymond the Writer. A Gandalf the Grey to Gandalf the White transformation was expected, and must be caught up in shipping somewhere, but I’m satisfied with the effects that have already taken hold… More soon!
