I just wanted to thank all my readers and extend an invitation to check out my story, “Wasted Meat,” which appears in the latest (Nov/Dec 2019) issue of Gray’s Sporting Journal which is available now at Barnes and Noble. I knew “Wasted Meat” was a special story when I wrote it, perhaps my best. Success, when it happens, always appears easy. But I was perusing my Submittable account the other day and found that my writing had been rejected 94 times and accepted 4, which is not much of a batting average. I write when I can in between the demands of work and family, knowing that, just occasionally, one of my stories will have the wings to leave me.

I just read your story and I really enjoyed it. It reminded me, in some way, of hunting with my grandpa for Teal in Wisconsin. Thanks for writing it.

Hey, that means a lot. Thanks so much. Teal make for some great wing-shooting and table fare. I have a hunting story about my own grandfather you might enjoy.
