I have a new short story, Future Bohemic Boyfriend published at The Bohemyth,
an amazing Dublin-based Literary Journal that everyone should read and love.
Please take a moment and give it a read.
I promise, you won’t regret it!
The Bohemyth is a personal favorite of mine – I just love the
entire aesthetic of the literary journal from the photography they use
to the amazing stories they publish.
I’m proud that my Bohemic Boyfriend has joined their ranks.
This is a special story for me: one of those magic moments in writing when it just
pours out of you and feels right and whole.
In running, I call it the magic mile because nothing hurts and everything works
and it feels like you could go on forever.
It only happens once out of every 100 times you make the attempt.
But, it only happens because you’ve struggled 99 times before it and you’ve paid your dues.
So, I hope you enjoy reading it as much I enjoyed writing it.
As a wild aside (at least on my end):
Why would Alice Walsh, the editor, choose such a perfect story (Joyce and Me by Anna Byrne)
to accompany my own in this issue?
How could she know that I’d had so many “Joyce and Me” moments in my life?
Because, Joyce Carol Oates was the first author I read and knew
that fiction was an important, world changing, art form.
And, that it was my art form.
Congratulations to Anna Byrne for writing something so lovely that I connected to so deeply.
Congratulations to Alice Walsh for an amazing job at The Bohemyth.
Best of luck to you, my friend!
Write like a bad ass!
