The submission/publication process for it was not a very interesting story, really--I was in school and submitting to slush piles just like everybody else. Now, because of platforms like Submittable, it's getting easier to do simultaneous submissions and keep track of them, but then most literary magazines were still getting their act together for online submissions at that point, so I had made a spreadsheet listing where I'd sent my stories and when and whether I'd heard back. I submitted the story to a few places and got some rejections, and then, finally, the acceptance. I was, of course, really excited--even more so when the magazine finally showed up in my mailbox later!(less)

“...I knew in the end the guilt of one side did not prove the innocence of the other.”
Sara Nović, Girl at War

“Their musings about how and why people stayed in a country under such terrible conditions were what I hated most. I knew it was ignorance, not insight that prompted these questions. they asked because they hadn't smelled the air raid smoke or the scent of singed flesh on their own balconies; they couldn't fathom that such a dangerous place could still harbor all the feelings of home.”
Sara Nović, Girl at War

“Music, I'd heard him say, was like dessert. He could live without it, but life just wasn't as good.”
Sara Nović, Girl at War
