The Orlando Weekly put out their annual Best of Orlando issue and I found this.
There’s not enough words to capture the joy in such recognition. Fiction in Orlando has been really terrific to me since transitioning away from running poetry shows and I’m proud to be contributing to a growing, talented fiction community that deserves more attention than all the poetry nights in this town. Below is such proof.
15 Views of Orlando got an incredibly well-deserved shout out in the same issue. Orlando lit thugs represent.
I went to the Best of Orlando party last night because I’ve never been to one and I quickly realized
- I am too old to wait in line for anything free.
- I am too old to be in loud, claustrophobic environments.
- Loud, claustrophobic environments are terrible places to drink or have a conversation for longer than five yelling minutes in.
- Corporate life makes drinking copious amounts of free booze hard on a Wednesday.
I’m glad people had a good time but it wasn’t for me. Thanks Orlando Weekly though for the award and the invite. It is appreciated and humbling.
