Every year there is one day of ABEA that just does not float my boat. Today is that day. I am tired of trying to “reinvent” my blog to make is zippier or more appealing. I like my design. I like my memes. I like my weekly reviews.
Also I am not a fan of the short story. Anthologies frustrate me. Usually they are so uneven I cannot love or hate the book. I love a story or I hate a story but the overall feeling I am then left with is “meh.”
So what do you do? Every year I try to find some way to turn the topics around into something I am interested in. And today after much stewing on it, as you can tell from my very late posting, I finally hit on it. While I do not like short stories I am sort of fascinated by short shorts, the super short story, the flash story and even the micro story. So today I will link to some of my favorites. (and because they are short, none will take you long to read!)
