|I wrote the
initial piece over a decade or more ago. I tried to get it
published but it wasn't ready. I had to hone my skills and edit
out some stuff that didn't add to the piece. I went to the Hawaii
Writer's conference where I looked over my work, reread this
story, and had an inspiration. I edited out a couple of
paragraphs, rewrote some areas and it became much tighter prose and
overall a better story.
I'm working with a group of Authors on the Harbinger*33 project. Much more than an anthology of short stories. "What would an anthology of short stories by Hemingway, Fitzgerald,Wolff, Bradbury, Lovecraft, Morrison, Vonnegut and 26 other burgeoning giants, published before they were famous, be? Harbinger*33."
