The second September short story

As previously mentioned, I’m planning to write ten short stories this month, all of them for eventual submission somewhere. 

That necessitates their appearance only in password-protected posts, thereby preserving my publication rights. 

Note: the password for this story has been removed since it was republished as public in a latter post.

I’m slightly behind schedule, but I’m ready with my second story. 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. 

If you have previously asked for it, that password will still work. 

This is a bit of a cheat since it’s a continuation from a writing prompt (original HERE). But not that much of a cheat because I always planned on continuing it. 

If you do read it, I would appreciate your feedback. Understand that giving feedback is not necessary; you can just read it for the enjoyment of reading it. 

If you do want to give feedback, I’m mostly interested in 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 one more of my food faces. This one comes, again, from the bagels I like to slice and toast.

Here is the finished product as created on my Samsung Note II . . . 


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.
