I admit it: I don’t love sushi. (I also don’t love goat cheese or pork belly. Clearly, my culinary tastes haven’t yet caught up to the twenty-first century). But I bet most of you have sushi stories to share and we’d love to hear them. I have an extra copy of the French edition of The Good Father, titled Une Vie Plus Belle, to give away. Even if you don’t read French, I think this adorable cover is worth a spot on your bookshelf! At 10pm EST Monday night (September 8th), I’ll use a random number generator to pick one of your sushi stories to win a copy of Bella’s story.
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 contributed. 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!
