Last Short Story…Ever?


Three years ago, I set myself the goal of going through my short stories and publishing one a month on my website. This month’s story, “Waiting For Word,” is the last. Like many fiction writers, I began with short stories, getting feedback, honing my craft, and eventually having a fair number of them published in literary magazines. In the process of reviewing them for my website, a few fell by the wayside; they just weren’t good enough. Others were improved by some rewriting and were included. Most, I’m happy to say, required only a slight editing to make the cut.

Overall, it’s been quite an experience reliving that part of my life. I don’t write short stories anymore–I prefer the larger canvas of a novel–so I appreciate the opportunity to share them here. My thanks to those who have read the stories and sent me comments.

Then again, never say never.
