It’s a cool feeling.
Back in August, Rachael encouraged me to write and submit something for a fiction contest that The Drabblecast was hosting. We were supposed to write something around the concept of the “cat with blue fur,” a character that the donor who enabled Drabblecast to run the contest in the first place created. The rules were set pretty broadly, and while our story had to feature a cat with blue fur, it was left up to the authors to decide just how significant a role it would play in our stories. I got an idea for doing a horror piece based on killer memes, and after pounding out the draft in a day or two, I posted it for voting.
That was pretty sweet.
Anyhow, that episode finally released over the weekend, and it’s glorious. It feels good hearing words I wrote being read by someone else on a podcast (thanks, Nathan!). You should go listen to it, especially since one of the other stories featured is a piece that Rachael wrote for the same contest.
It’s kind of weird and kind of nice to have something published by someone else. I should try to do that more often.
