Why Read A Short Story?
We all remember reading short stories during our early school years. These good reads had a beginning, middle and end all wrapped up in small package. They were a great read leaving time for play afterwards. The nice part was the realization of the ending which usually left a small piece of wisdom or message to satisfy the reader. There are many to recall from Guy de Maupassant’s “The Necklace” to “The Tell Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe. Lastly, how could we forget “The Gift of Magi” by O. Henry.
I enjoy writing short stories today for the same reason I liked reading them as a young child. They have elaborate characters with a plot sophisticated enough to get me to read from start to finish. My short stories are centered around female characters. We confront a range of challenges unique to our gender. Exploring conflicts helps me work through some of my own real-life situations. We’re all bound by experiences which I try to spotlight as delicately and realistically, as possible. My hope is that through reading these stories you find compassion and a connection. You are not alone in what you are going through in your life. We all have baggage to sort through as a women. Certainly, there are other women living something similar somewhere in the outside world.
If you can be entertained, enlightened or engaged in any way then I have served my purpose as a writer. The stories can be a great read during commuting time between work and home.
