How time flies. For the past week I’ve been working on a short story and hoped to have time to write another afterwards before I go to America. Well – no. Time flies, as they say, and when I finished the short story I not only realized I hadn’t written anything here in nearly a week(!) but also that I only have 4 days left until I leave and there are still things to be done. Unfortunately I don’t think I’ll publish the short story before then but it just might show up here some time after I get back! Around the time I get back I’ll also start editing Project 1 and send my second batch of agent queries. I was hoping to have heard from all agents by now but only 1/3 replied so far. At least their delay will make me want to come back home and check my mail for any manuscript requests while I’m away.
Question to my avid followers: Do you often read short stories?
I’m not speaking about prose pieces published online but actual short stories (which may be online as well) that are at least 2000 words long. In that case – where do you get hold of them? Do you use a kindle to download them from the Amazon store or do you buy short story collections?
I was going to write a poem about here but as I brainstormed I thought of an idea for a short story instead! So I’ll try to get that done at some point (maybe when I’m away – who knows) which means you’ll have to enjoy it then instead. Meanwhile I leave you with a – very – short story by Hemingway.
