One Fall Down, Six To Go

Not the best of news but, I guess I was kind of expecting it.

While I haven't seen an actual copy, it doesn't look like any of my work made it into the next Everywhere Magazine. I just came across this page where they've finally posted a list of all of the people who contributed to the final issue. Not realizing they were in alphabetical order, I scanned frantically for my name. There were four Matt's (so my heart skipped four beats this evening) but, sadly, none of them were me.

My biggest disappointment is not that I didn't get published but that I won't be able to try again with them (this will be there last issue). And, even though it'll be a little while longer before I finally get to see my name in print, I'm still thankful for their support. (Particularly here and here.)

The Japanese have a saying "nana korobi ya oki" which means "Fall down seven times, get up eight".

Consider this my standing back up. May everyone on the Everywhere team have no trouble getting back on their feet again, too.
