Happy New Year, everyone!

I’m a little late getting around to posting this, but I wanted to share another publication update. The Daily Drunk Magazine published my hybrid flash fiction story “New Attendance Codes” on Christmas Eve. I was excited to add this to my list of publications for 2020.

I wrote “New Attendance Codes” in an attempt to capture the pure absurdity of this school year. Schools and families are doing the best they can – I mean that earnestly – but this year has been unlike anything we have ever faced before. Each day poses a new challenge, and the challenges are far from what we used to typically experience.

Writing this story was simply one teacher’s way of having a laugh to help find his way through an obscure time.

I hope you enjoy it!

  1. Justin This is hysterical and so true!!! You have to share it with Jim! I tried to “like” it, but it sent me to some site where I have to sign in and leave my name, so I didn’t. I will write a longer email soon. I actually started one this morning and saved it, so I will finish it either today or tomorrow and send  it off. Love, Andrea

    1. Haha, thanks Andrea! Glad you enjoyed the story. Good idea, I’ll have to send it over to Jim at some point. I figured other teachers would relate and understand exactly where I was coming from! If you guys go back in-person I hope everyone stays safe. As far as I know, we’re back in person tomorrow, but things could change on a dime. Hope all is well!
