Soul Poison

Like almost everyone, I have a Real Job (cue ominous music). It is not entirely horrible, but neither is it entirely satisfying.

[I just noticed that, without conscious intent, I described the Real Job using only negatives. Might be a deeper meaning there.]

Dr. Wife would probably say that my writing exists only to to work out my passive-aggressive feelings. Maybe. Certainly, a recent kidney stone of 100-word satire fits that description.

All of this is preamble to my announcement that Emily, an editor at 101 Words, let me know they have accepted a spiky nugget titled "Soul Poison" for publication around July 20.

Now THAT is entirely satisfying. Stay tuned for updates.
