I wrote a travel essay for YoMoYaMa Magazine, a free publication put out by the JET Program. You can read it here. You have to flip through the virtual pages. It`s on pages 8-10.
I wish I had revised it more. Reading it now makes me cringe. It has some good things, but I can tell that I should have spent more time on it. At least it was a learning experience. I`m disappointed with how the formatting came out. It also lists my name as "Emily hayes," which makes no sense. I probably won`t be submitting to YoMoYaMa again. It`s not a bad publication, and the people who put it out are really busy and hardworking, but I really need to be compiling things for a portfolio and resume right now. I don`t have time for stuff like that.
In other news, I`m almost done with a short story! I got some good feedback from my online writers` workshop and am feeling motivated. It`s a good day.
