A story in Pulp Fly V3

The latest edition of Pulp Flypulpflycoverready3-sm was released this month and I had the honor and privilege of being a contributor in this edition. I found my chapter nestled in among works by very talented writers who are gifted story tellers.

Truth be told I was pretty apprehensive about the whole enterprise. Writing a short story is not something I have done a lot of. My last experience was in an 8th grade creative writing class at Derryfield School. My offering about a freewheeling rake was considered such far fetched fantasy by one of my classmates, she wrote her own version of my story from a young woman’s point of view. Needless to say I quit the genre and took up fishing…

I do enjoy telling stories and putting one down on virtual paper to be sold to the public is a leap of faith. Not sure I will keep at it because as Robert Heinlein said “Writing is not necessarily something to be ashamed of, but do it in private and wash your hands afterwards.”
