How do you feel about red heads? People have mixed feelings, I suppose. But I think a cute carrot top can be quite seductive. That whole “fire crotch” thing is kind of tantalizing, don’t you think?
It’s been a quiet day for me: writing, editing a story I wrote three years ago, taking a walk on the beach with my boyfriend. I drove a relative to her doctor’s appointment, then my boyfriend and I took a two-mile walk on the island. The weather was exquisite: sunny, cool and dry. Sunset tonight was beautiful: all these streaky clouds glowing pink and gold.
It’s been quite a while since I placed any free fiction on this blog, and I guess it’s time I posted a fresh story for those of you who have not purchased Skater Boys, a Cleis Press anthology published June 2010. My story in the book is titled Carter DuBose, and it’s one of my favorite stories I’ve ever had published.
Tomorrow, I’ll begin posting excerpts from the story for all of you to enjoy. I wrote the story while living in Berlin during summer 2009. I hope everyone likes it. Enjoy your Monday night, all.
