Dad’s swollen suitcase sat in the back corner of his room. I saw it as I walked past his door.
He said he had to work; he’d be home late.
Say hi to your mistress, I thought. It was my birthday. And the last time he walked through that door.
Sara lives in Texas with her boyfriend, cat, and turtle. She is about to start work as a staff attorney for a non-profit law firm. Writing has always been her favorite way to convey information and inspire ideas. Now that law school is out of the way, she is thrilled to be able to spend time writing fiction. Sara has short stories forthcoming from Eunoia Review and Wicked Industries in the near future.
This week is going to look a little different from most weeks at 50WS. Instead of having one story from a guest writer and four from me, you’re going to be seeing five great stories sent in by readers.
The reason for doing a full guest week is that I’m getting married in 12 days, and life is a little… hectic, to say the least. I barely have time to think about writing more stories right now.
I’m not 100% sure what next week will look like yet, but I know that the stories you’ll be seeing this week are really good, even if I didn’t write them. :)
On another note, as you’ll see in the announcement area at the top of the page, I’ve dropped the prices on my book to $2.99 for the ebook and $9.99 for the print book from Lulu. Hit up the Store to see how you can grab a (now more affordable) copy for yourself!
