So it turns out that I've inadvertently written a piece of YA fiction. I've been plugging, ad nauseum -- my apologies -- this short story on Wattpad. When I wrote it, I didn't write it for any particular demographic. I wrote it, like always, because I liked the idea, and I wanted to see what happened next. After getting rejected by a few magazines, and not having the time to read all of these magazines to get a sense of their readership, I decided to hand it over to the interwebs and see what kind of audience finds it. And, to my surprise, its been embraced by the YA community.
Their comments have been awesome. Thank you, interwebs.
