He Just Wanted a Publication Credit | Samuel Dawson

He just wanted a publication credit.
He was not going to encourage people he knew to check the story out.
He wasn’t proud of it.
He knew his story being self-referential and meta did not make it good, lend it any credence
of value.
He very briefly spell-checked. He tried to get it at least somewhat close to one hundred
But that was it. No effort. No edits. Didn’t even sustain the whole each-sentence starting-
with-‘he’ thing.
Please. Skip to the next story.

Sam has been published by Banditfiction, Audio Arcadia, and is upcoming in the Syncopation Literary Review. He works as a bid writer in the charity sector and has an MA in Creative Writing.
