It’s nice to feel wanted. I just received word that a short piece of fiction I posted to Fictionaut a few weeks back titled ‘Swing’ has been chosen for the community’s Editor’s Eye Showcase. Francis Lefkowitz, the showcase’s curator, had this to say:
One of the baseball greats, or maybe all of them, used to say you had no choice but to “just keep swinging,” especially when you’re in a slump, and sooner or later you’ll start connecting again. As Mr. Bellamy shows in this potent storypoem, the advice applies for all sports, maybe for all of life. And it’s no metaphor even if it is one. Such a solid sense of flesh and impact here.
