Today marks a small milestone for me. My first piece of published fiction, The History Buff, is released today. Granted it is a small flash-fiction piece, but I still feel a little giddy about it. I’ve had my writing published before, but they were all non-fiction and academic. This is something different for me.
I have quite a few friends that are making great headway toward their writing goals and they just inspire me so much. Even though I’m not planning on leaving librarianship in the near future; having some success in fiction writing is something of a dream of mine and it feels good to get that first recognized piece published, no matter how small it is.
