For this piece, I decided to share one of my short stories instead of a personal essay. Here is a story I wrote last year and submitted to Duende Literary Journal. To my great surprise, they had chosen it to be published! I was floored when I got the news because I never thought that an awesome literary journal like Duende would like my work. Sharing my creative work has always been difficult because I am very critical of myself. The strange thing is that when I write personal essays, I feel good about what I write. But with fiction pieces, I am never confident. Do you guys ever feel that about some things you do? I’m working towards not letting that self doubt get in the way of my creative writing.
