A new publication of mine in FFO: Ice Cream and English Summers
I wrote a little bit about this on Twitter but basically, this story has a Dramatic History.
The short version: I wrote this, got some feedback that burned because I was oversensitive about the content of the story itself, and I nearly trashed it–subbing it only to one ‘zine in the end.
But they took it, with edits of course. And their edits/suggestions were fantastic for addressing its issues without breaking the feel (I hope).
In short, I clearly have no idea what does or doesn’t sell and you should always try anyway. And take a step back from critiques sometimes. It’s okay to do that.
