Some of you have seen this story, some of you haven’t. I was holding out on posting it online in the hopes that I’d find a magazine to publish it. As it turns out, there’s not much of a market for longish short fiction for young adults. As always, genuine feedback is greatly appreciated!
Here’s a little story for you–just a modern tip of the hat to “Oisin in Tir na nOg.”
To my loyal readers, I come bearing a gift! Fair warning, though: it’s one of those gifts that you might find yourself wishing you could give away at the next Yankee Swap party, but if you regift it, it will only reflect on your own taste.
I’ve opened an account with a service called Scribd, which lets me publish stories and such online. This means I can share longer pieces of writing with you in a less eye-killing manner than the limited format of these blog entries.
Without further ado, I am pleased to present (hot off the pdf press) a short story entitled

P.S. Thanks go to my friend Marcia for the comment that inspired this story, and if any of my sharp-eyed readers of refined palettes have edits or comments, I would be grateful to have them.
P.P.S. Regarding regifting, I would actually be flattered and delighted if you pass my story around. : )
