Short Story Month 2010

The Emerging Writers Network is celebrating the short story all May long. The Network is run by Dan Wickett, an insightful reviewer and literary activist. He loves to read and write about fiction, and reading his site is addictive. Especially during May. The month is more an awareness and an appreciation than a contest or a party.

So read more short stories. Talk about them, think about them. Write one. That's what I plan to do--start and finish one this month. Seems feeble, but if you've written short stories you'll know that it's no small goal.

And if you're so inclined, send me the names of your favorite short stories, or good ones that you've read lately. Comment here or e-mail, whichever. Let's talk about short stories.
