My first love in writing was short stories, and I still love to read them. I love poetry too, and lyrics for songs. A lot of people ask me how to write a book. I usually tell them that it's good to start by writing short stories. On my samanthawinston.com website I have a section marked short fiction where I have posted a couple of my stories, and on my jennifermacaire.com website, in the links section, is a whole list of my short stories that you can read on the web.
Today re-read a book of short stories by one of my idols, Ray Bradbury. (R is for Rocket)
Are there any short stories that you particularly loved? I remember reading 'The Scarlet Ibis' when I was in school - and it's stayed with me all my life.
