I finished the story I was working on for the “Katherine Anne Porter Prize for Fiction.” I read, reread it, revised it and tampered with it so much that I’m pretty sure the image of the words are burned on my retinas.
I just finished a draft of the story I plan to submit to the NPR Three Minute Fiction Contest later this week. (Incidentally, the story I just sold was originally written as an entry into a previous Three Minute Fiction Contest!)
I have also just realized that a lot of my stories creep me out. I am not sure what this says about me, but it is true. I don't actually read a lot of horror--unless you count the news headlines.
So, tell me…what kinds of stories do you like to read?
