This topic is inspired by the fact that my e-short story, The First Lie, will be available Tuesday (99¢ in the US and 99p in the UK), and it has a lot to do with a birth out of wedlock. The First Lie introduces the characters from my upcoming September release Necessary Lies (and both the story and the book are available right now for preorder. Just sayin’!)
By the way, this is our ninetieth Story Weekend! We’re going to have to find a way to celebrate when we hit one hundred!
If you’re new to Story Weekend, here’s how it works: I pick a theme and you share something from your life that relates to that theme, however you interpret it. Thanks to all of you who’ve been contributing. As always, there are a few “rules”:
▪ The story must be true
▪ Try to keep it under 100 words. Embrace the challenge! That’s about six or seven lines in the comment form. I want others to read your story, and most people tend to skip if it’s too long. I know how tough it is to “write tight” but I hope you’ll accept this as a challenge. Happy writing!
