Micro Podcast Appearance!

Could not be more stoked to share this! I’m a huge fan of Micro, one of my favorite podcasts, listen to it every week, and I can now say that I’ve been on the show! Today’s episode is basically Halloween in May, and I’ve got a spooky little dystopian micro for you guys. Huge thanks again to Mallory Smart over at Maudlin House for picking this one up in the first place! It’s time for SPOOKS.

Things will get better.

I want a time travel story like the thing that just hit me. I don’t want travel to dinosaur times or prehistoric man, although that would be cool. I don’t want splintering realities or historical hijinks or grandfather paradoxes. I want a book to appear, dog-eared, in the bottom of eighth-grade-me’s backpack. I want him to see his name on the cover and to wonder about what might be inside, what might be in store. I want him to sit, cross-legged on the floor in late-night TV glow, turning pages, reading his own words from fifteen years in the future. I want him to fall asleep with that story flickering through his mind’s projector, and a repeat message like a nightly mantra:

Things will get better.

Things will get better.

Things will get better.

They already have.
