Dear Readers, I hope you will not mind a post of a slightly different sort. I have a small confession to make: I’m a closet writer.
Sure, I write as part of my job, and of course I write about books here. But I also steal a little time, here and there, to write fiction and poetry. It’s slow going, so I’m pleased as punch to say that I’ve got a very short (really, as in 500 or so words) story in the latest issue of Midway Journal. You can read it here, if you’re so inclined, along with the work of writers whose company I’m very proud to be in.
Thank you for indulging this shameless self-promotion. Back to regularly scheduled programming next week.

Dont understand how it’s shameless self promotion when it’s your blog. I’ll be sure to check it out, I’ve followed, I’m a writer myself, and if you have the time I’d love for you to check out my small blog. Atm its mainly short stories and a bit of poetry, but I’m working on a novel (Prologue is on my blog). Feel free to check it out on http://www.kasimskorner.com , keep blogging and have a good day 🙂
Thanks! I’ll be sure to check your blog out 🙂
Can’t wait to see you there 🙂
Your story is amazing! So well written and different.

Yay, Carolyn! So good! And, great first sentence. 🙂
Thank you Naomi! Inspired by H’s art supplies, as you can imagine . . .
Wow! Congratulations! I’ll be reading it soon.
Thank you Kay! And thanks for sharing it on facebook!
Very well done! Promote all you want, because I want to read more. I can’t wait until I get to review YOUR book on my blog. I can tell it will happen.
Thank you so much for the encouragement, Emily! That is such a kind thing to say 🙂
Your story reverberated for hours and hours after I read it. Very vivid, authentic, and compelling. You captured that sense of how time, proportion, interpersonal myth and focus on the body so defines youthful reflections. Oh, and summer! Thank You!
You have no idea how much this means to me, Lindsay! Thank you so very much for taking the time to read the story.
