We are happy to announce the publication of "Model Home" by Catherine Uroff!
Before an accepted story is published, the author is asked to select another published piece on the 10ktobi website and write a short statement about the story, noting in what ways it might be provocative, insightful, interesting or impressive. The writer’s comments appear with an Editor’s Note as to why the piece was chosen. In this way, 10,000 Tons of Black Ink strives to promote dialogue between writers, editors and readers, and supports the writing community as a whole.

“Model Home” exposes the frailties of reinventing ourselves to move on from the past, making clear the impact of our environment. It reminds us that human failing is all around, a part of who we are, a human condition we can either give into or face head on, making the necessary changes to better ourselves and find our place in the world. The subtly in which this mystery is unraveled keeps the reader intrigued, waiting for choices to be made, action to be taken, and in the end, being wholly satisfied with the outcome.
