“Rider of the Wind” in A Story in 100 Words

Hey readers! What an honor . . . my story “Laid Off” has been accepted by Flash: The International Short-Short Story Magazine, journal of the International Flash Fiction Association (IFFA).

Usually I wait until a story is printed or posted before announcing it because deals can fall through. But this is a prestigious publication, and I couldn’t keep this to myself. I’ll announce when the magazine is available.

In more immediate news, my story “Rider of the Wind” has been posted by A Story in 100 Words: http://entropy2.com/…/100…/2021/09/06/rider-of-the-wind/

Talk about a challenge. Try writing something compelling in exactly 100 words sometime . . . not so easy, folks! For this, I had the sensation of a scene and tweezed out from there.

If you read it–c’mon, this should only take you a minute or two–your feedback is welcome (as always).

If you’re keen on learning about story craft, time’s running out for registration. Sign up for my classes at: https://www.campusce.net/sunybroome/category/category.aspx

Thank you for reading.
