I’ve read several books and short stories over the years, but never considered myself much of a writer. I tend toward more utilitarian, concise, and direct writing over the creative word use of an expert writer. I’m not a terribly creative writer either — I tend to write about what I think and what I see, and am not often known for my flights of fancy.
Imagine my surprise, then, when I had an inspiration the other day for a short story. I’m still putting together the outline in my copious amounts of free time, so we’ll see when I actually get to writing. I’ll likely post it here in stages as the writing progresses.
