Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Discovering an overlooked treasure

James W. Hall’s Hard Aground was published in 1992. I’m not sure how it slipped past me, since I’ve pretty much grabbed each of his books at the time of their release. I had to jump back nearly 20 years to read Hard Aground after stumbling over it browsing the stacks at my local library. Time travel has never been so much fun.

Monkeybicycle Publishes My Short Story ‘Bunnies Bathing’

My First Fiction Publication has been posted today as the weekend feature at Monkeybicycle. I endured 127 rejections of various stories before I received this acceptance from Guest Web Editor Casey Bye (and screamed myself silly).

 

Why didn’t I give up once I’d reached 50 or 100 rejections? I wish I could say it’s because I’m tough and driven and I know that my writing is worth putting out in the world, but…
