“I’m big in Japan…”


My short story, “It’s Been Way Too Long” was accepted for publication by Yomimono, a small but reputable Japanese litmag a few months ago. Yesterday, issues of Yominono, with my published story, arrived in the mail…and I can now say, “I’m big in Japan” in response to those who tell me, “I’ve never read your work.”


It’s not my first time in print, but it’s my first time in print since my stroke and being able to resume writing fiction. And it’s been a long time since my last time in print (I’ve been finalists in contest, but no publications for years now)–so I’m a bit psyched. 🙂

Also, did you hear? I can now technically say that I’m “big in Japan.” 😛

    Do they print it in Japanese too? Then you can brag about your work being translated into X languages. That always sounds impressive.

    Wheh, that had to be a rough drought! Hoist one for me, my friend.
