MY FIRST PUBLICATION! "Adventuring", in Daily Science Fiction

YOU GUYS!  I got my first story really-truly published. Like, "they're sending me a check" published.

It's a very short (read: flash fiction) fantasy story, entitled "Adventuring", inspired by things like Tolkein and playing D&D. You can read it (and rate it!) on Daily Science Fiction.

There are no dogs in this story, however. Maybe the next one?

  5. Just wanted to come back and tell you how much I loved the story. I used to be a bit of a D&D nerd back in the day too, so I'm reading it as if sitting around a table "adventuring" with my friends. Nice!

  6. What a terrific feeling that is; to be paid for you writing! I am so happy for you. You did not write about dogs this time, but you kinda/sorta mentioned them:
    "The dog-eared book you meant to keep a diary in, or write letters home." Haha, that does not really count but I thought it was interesting. Congrats again!
