Edward LearI’ve been bitten by the short story bug this winter and spring, and was averaging one a week there at the apex of my ambition. However, reality has intruded. Am writing nonfiction this week, so it’s unlikely I’ll get to any stories at all. I really need to be working on some longer works, too. I have novels in various stages of disrepair. Hopefully my schedule will clear soon, so I can get back to the creative writing.
