Well, this is cool. My story “Happy Birthday, Valerie” was chosen to be featured in Story ADay.org‘s StoryFest, which highlights stories written as part of StoryADay in May – a month-long exercise where you attempt to write something in response to each day’s writing prompt.
The neat thing about “Happy Birthday, Valerie” is that it was initially written in 40 minutes (that was the prompt for the day!).
You can read it and all of the others here. Enjoy!
