Here is story number 4 in my Flash Fiction series of six examples of short stories from Lynn Johnston’s set used to prepare her Worksheet for brainstorming a short story. If you haven’t got the worksheet or the other two stories go back to the posts for Thursday and Friday last week and yesterday. Here is the link for story 4.
If She Were to Lay Down, by Molia Dumbleton: http://www.kenyonreview.org/kr-online-issue/2014-summer/selections/molia-dumbleton-342846/
This story was not really to my taste but it had pathos and a little wonder in it. It would probably suit someone who was looking for a story that could be true rather than something that was definitely fiction. See what you think.
And don’t be shy. I would like to see your stories. If that’s a step too far then share your comments on the sample stories.
