March 8th continues to be an auspicious day for me. In 2004, it was the date I embarked on an Appalachian Trail thru-hike. One year ago, on March 8, 2010, I wrote a post on that, and began hinting at what eventually became last year’s big adventure: a move from North Carolina to Seattle.
Appropriate then, that March 8th is the day my first “published” story appears. The title is From Here to the Sargasso, and it’s viewable over at Every Day Fiction. Go check it out.
From Here to the Sargasso is a slightly-fictionalized account of an encounter that really did happen, on New Smyrna Beach, in August of 2006. Charlie really is my brother, he really did go to L.A., and now he’s on Broadway, performing alongside Daniel Radcliffe and John Larroquette in the musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Here’s his website.
Freddy the Sea Turtle, to my knowledge, does not have a website, but if anyone finds one, let me know. It would be nice to know he’s doing all right.
