The Cafe Irreal’s Spring issue dropped today, and my name is folded between the pixelated pages with my flash fiction piece, 40.
I originally wrote this as a twist story, but couldn’t make it work. Since then, I’ve learned from John Adamus that a twist should surprise the characters more than the readers. Good advice, that.
Anyway, someday I’d like to revisit the idea of chemical limits on communication.
You can check out the story at The Cafe Irreal.
My poetry chapbook is still available, and of course, there’s the Patreon with my writing diary, poetry postcards, audio, and snippets of work-related posts. There’s also a whole page of my published work, most of it available for free. Enjoy!
And, let me know what you thought of 40!
