Flash Fiction Story Sold to Zahir

Monday, 11 April 2011

I heard today that Zahir have bought Meteorology for Beginners, a flash-length story submitted to them back in February. It should be appearing in their next edition, in July. Happy dance! This is one of my favourite little stories. I know we're supposed to love them all equally, but ...

Incidentally, this is another tale I developed out of a smaller piece : originally it was a 6-sentence story but when it grew up it became 1000 words or so long. Seems to be a familiar pattern ...
