I'm keeping this one short, no pun intended, because I have to give feedback to essays. I decided to take a shot at some flash fiction to submit to different venues. I already have one done that I need to go over, but I am writing a fresh one about a retired man who is addicted to the casino. No, there won't be magical realism in this piece.
The collection, Not Your Abuelita's Folktales, is still a work in progress. I farmed out the last story to my friend for review, but it is long. Mostly, I need to revise the last story and proofread all the stories before I review the printed proof. The other issue is the cover. My friend is going to design the cover, but I know he's really busy. I think at some point, I may take some graphic design classes and buy the software, but the software is not cheap.
Anyway, I'm off to immerse myself in literary interpretations.
