My favorite genre is still the short story.
Every once in a while, I submit one. Indeed, I'm thinking of putting together a new short story collection and shutting down those voices in my head that whisper: novels, people want novels.
Today my story "Dis-Engagement" was accepted by the Jewish Literary Journal. Shout-out to author Ruchama King Feuerman who read this story not long ago and asked me why it wasn't under submission somewhere. I had written it and forgotten all about it and her feedback motivated me to send it out.
Thanks for the nudge, Ruchama!
"Dis-Engagement" is coming out in the next issue of the Jewish Literary Journal, on November 1.
I'll be happy to share it with you then and would love to hear what you think.
UPDATE: Here it is.
