The first September short story

As some people might have read, I’m committed to writing ten short stories this month, all of them for eventual submission somewhere. 

That means that all will appear only in password-protected posts so that I can preserve my publication rights. 

For them interested, I’m a tad behind schedule; last night I wrote the first one. I just finished editing it, and I’m going to post it right after this post for anyone interested in reading it (HERE). All you have to do is ask me for the password in the comments below.

Now, I don’t normally ask for readers; life is too short to go around begging people to read my stuff. However, if you are going to read it, I would appreciate feedback and I also ask advice about the ending.

The feedback I’m interested in relates to anything that threw you out of the story, or something that jarred you while reading it so that it interrupted your reading flow. This could be about the plot, events, flow, etc. 

I’m also interested if you have an opinion about the characters; how they came across, did you care for them or could not care less, is the dialogue fairly realistic, etc.

And now, because people expect photos, I give you more of my food faces. These two are made from pictures of the oil and vinegar mix I use when I have a salad (two parts oil, one part vinegar, pepper and salt to taste).

Here are the original photos from my phone . . .

. . . and here are the modified photos . . . I think they are supposed to be clowns.



That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so.  I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards.   I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way.  That would mean something to me.

  1. I would like to read your story. Could you send me the password? Thanks

      Just did.

      By the way, you don’t have to add the e-mail (I removed it from the comment). When I get a notification of a comment I also get the e-mail.

      In fact, I would prefer if people would not add their e-mail where others can read it because you never know who is mining for e-mails.


  2. Love the food faces and your clowns! :-P
    May I read your story, please?!
    HUGS!!! :-)

  4. Bill Garner says:

    Yes I would like the password. I have always enjoyed your writing.


  5. Happy Hump Day! What do you call a camel with NO humps?!
    I have a long day of med tests today!
    HUGS!!! :-)

    I would like to read it, subject to rather severe time constraints at present. As long as you don’t mind comments rather more perfunctory than may be deserved.
