Written February 1st, 2020, this came about from a challenge to myself: a 100 word story.
A quirky slice of life about an artist in a small town. An older work, it's a little rough around the edges. Still, it brings me joy. Started in November 2016 and finished in July 2019.
My first go at Reference Fiction. With each entry, the tone varies from solemn to satirical, the prose from steady to swift. Finished in December 2020.
During the beginning of the pandemic, I challenged myself to write a short story every week. This is one of those stories.
Here I've successfully created a cynical protagonist! Also very proud the descriptions, bordering on purple prose but not quite.
