I’m late to posting, but last month a story of mine, “Baby It’s Cold Outside”, was published in Atlas and Alice.
Originally, I wrote this story in first person point of view and for a good while I was unhappy with it. The conceit (a thumb falls off without cause), had been rumbling in my head for a little bit, and I’ve been embracing the surreal landscape of my writing a little bit more.
Any way, it wasn’t until recently (right before I submitted the story to A&A), that I considered switching the POV, and I’m really happy I did. I think the distance between first and third lends itself to the cooling apathy of the narrative.
Hope you’ll check it out and enjoy. Find the story here: https://atlasandalice.com/2017/06/05/fiction-from-caleb-michael-sarvis/
