I’ve read a lot of short stories in the past five days. I’m surprised by them. Crime stories aren’t anything like I thought they’d be. I thought you’d have to solve a crime and I haven’t come across one that does that. They seem to be more O’Henry type endings.
Now I’m sorry I said no to all those other offers to be in an anthology. See what comes from not reading the manual.
Anyway, I have my opening line.
