The good: My story Simón Simone Simón was just published in The Acentos Review. I should feel good right?
The bad: I submitted an earlier version in error. So if you notice something is off, or a comma is missing, please don’t even tell me. I’m already nauseous, caught between excitement and humiliation.
The lesson: Be sure I send out the correct version, no matter how many times I revise, saving myself much heartache later.
The truth: Like Tobias, I will never be able to reread my own work without wanting to change it, rearrange it, polish it. All I can do is look ahead and improve, improve, improve!
So, if you can see past my novitiate solecism, please enjoy the story: The Acentos Review: Simón Simone Simón
