“New Attendance Codes” has been published by The Daily Drunk Magazine

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!

Two Recent Acceptances

Good news! I recently had two of my flash fiction stories accepted.

“The World is Ending and I Forgot My Grocery List” will be published over at Free Flash Fiction later this month. I’m happy the story found a home.

I’m even more excited about my story, “Charlie”. It has been accepted at Emerge Literary Journal and will appear in their November issue!

I’m grateful for these publications and their kind editors.

That’s it for now. Expect to see some Friday Fix posts soon, as exciting events and developments are on the horizon.

Happy writing,

Justin
