I have big news! Yesterday I published my first work of fiction, a short piece called “The Sirens,” over at a lit mag called Visitant. This is a huge accomplishment for me, and I could not be happier. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you’ll know how long I’ve wanted to be a published writer and how much I love stories. Writing consistently is one of my challenges, especially with both a full-time job and blogging, and publishing in my 20s was always a goal for me. Now that I’ve started, even in a small way, I hope I never stop!
The piece is a re-imagining of the classic Greek myth of the sirens, and I loved writing this myth with a modern point of view. I have always loved mythology, folklore, and fairy tales, and writing something like this felt natural to me. I hope you like it!
