Matt: How It Will Happen

Great news to wake up to this early morn! My story "Matt: How It Will Happen," which is very short so you should read it, is up now at SmokeLong Quarterly along with great work by Darlin' Neal, Dorianne Laux, Dan Chaon, and many more. I'm proud of this one, yessir. The hunky drawing that accompanies the piece was done by Summer.

Oh, it's you. I was hoping for Sylvie.

I thought it was good. It had a natural flow to it that made the ending too abrupt, for me. The sentence above was stuck in my head. That was until I read what you put down on paper.

I'm a pessimist, and a dick so I think things should end badly for everyone. So I guess your ending is better because I was let down and left wanting more. $.02
