I actually debated as to whether I should submit this story for publication, given that it is intensely personal. I finally did, because I do believe in subjective authenticity and my super-awesome editor, David, suggested that I write a story cycle. This is the first in a series of stories of my time in Edinburgh.
I'm a huge fan of The Notebook myself and was delighted when the eds posted this in their "about us" page :
Our goal over the next year is to become the go-to place for writers of all kinds to publish select travel notes and journals, and to continue to publish our unique vision for travel ‘notes’–work you wouldn’t typically find in either a literary journal or travel magazine, but which combines elements of both.
Here is my piece. Let me know what you think :)
