Return of Story of the Month

Posted in Story Of The Month at 2:38 pm by Amber

The Story of the Month feature has been missing the last few months.  Either I didn’t read much short fiction or nothing I read stuck.  In November, I even had a story ready to post.  It was something I read shortly before the end of October and I wasn’t sure if it really fit the criteria for a Story of the Month.  Here’s what I said back in April was the criteria:

I’ve decided to do a new feature by the 7th of each new month.  As you can guess, I highlight a short story that makes an impression on me.  The story may not have been published in that particular month or the previous month – the only qualification is that I read the story after the previous Story of the Month.

There may even be more than one Story of the Month in February.  I’ve been catching up on a lot of short story reading!

    Short stories are great. When you read one, you feel like you’ve accomplished something. I’ve got about 3 books I started but didn’t finish because I didn’t have enough time, then I couldn’t find them when I needed something to read.

    Not only is the feeling of accomplishment there – short stories are great when there’s only 15 or 20 minutes available to read!
