I learned today that May is Short Story Month in the States. This makes me happy, not only because I like short stories so much but also because my own story will come out on the 29th. I find that rather apropos.
Although I’ve written stories for as long as I can remember, it wasn’t until I was in 7th grade that I realised just how beautiful and powerful a short story can be. That’s when I read “All Summer In A Day” by Ray Bradbury. It remains my favourite short story to this day.
For several reasons, I like the thought of reading and sharing stories with one another. So a whole month dedicated to such literary activities is highly appealing. I’m looking forward to discovering new authors as well as revisiting old favourites this month.
What’s your favourite short story, or your go-to short story author?
