Illegal Turn

Illegal Turn

This week’s story for my weekly writing challenge of fictional tales told totally in dialogue is Illegal Turn. The story revolves around a first date and an interloper who just doesn’t follow the rules of the road (or dating for that matter).


I managed to get in a lot of editing and short story writing this past week. Overall it was very relaxing. Yes! Writing is relaxing for me mentally. That is, I feel healthier and better for having spent more time at it than usual. The other thing I also did was send out some submissions. So maybe another acceptance letter will be on its way . . . in like six months to a year (publications run on their own particular time tables).


The weather turned wintry for a while, hopped back to summer for a day, and has parked at fall, which is where I hope it stays for a while. I like the electric feel of fall air. Too bad it’s so rainy during the Autumn these past several years. All the rain knocks the leaves to the ground, leaving few trees to admire in their autumnal regalia.

If you’re in a fall mood, may I suggest you check out Irony, published by 3:AM Magazine.
