I hope to start blogging here again soon. For now, one of my stories has been published in Joyland Magazine.
These words are in it:
Bellingham Review recently published my short story, “Missing Person: Female, Fifteen” in their Issue 63. So I made a Wordle to show you what it’s “about”:
Wordles. They’re great, aren’t they? I love how they highlight oft-used words and create fascinating combinations of language. This one looks like a collection of cut-and-pasted headlines, and that’s appropriate, because the story is partly woven through and around a fictional newspaper headline. Within the arrangement, here are some headlines I love:
“Girl cooks. Mother burns body.”
“Music wife missing”
“Man envisions purple”
“Loud art breaking”
“Father undresses wants”
“Pain shadows girl”
From now on, when someone asks what I write about, I will use a variation of one of these things. “It’s about loud art breaking.” Done. Thank you, Wordle.
