Reader (Short Story)

After a bit of scrambling and hasty editing, the first draft of my fifth short story is now available for you to read at this location. Click the link and take a look. As always, I would love to hear what you have to say once you’ve read it. Thoughts, opinions, rants, criticisms – all are welcome.

Reader is rather unique, I think, among the stories I’ve written so far. For one thing, it’s not quite as creepily bizarre. It’s still strange, don’t get me wrong… just not as strange. For another thing, it was a harder story to write. I don’t know why, it just was. And lastly, I’m still not sure what I think of it. I’m rather ambivilant about it at the moment. But that may be simply because I’ve exhausted so many brain cells in staying up late to work on it. I think I need some serious R and R. That, or I should just stick my finger in an outlet.
