Flash Fiction Post 69 – Crisis Management


Afternoon everybody.

This week I was asked why I write stories. So before I introduce you to my latest effort, let me try to answer that question. I didn’t read much as a child or a teenager. I was too busy outside, then with sports and academics. It was only in my early twenties that I discovered the joy of a good book. Now I read for relaxation and escapism. I love a book with a good storyline, interesting characters and lots of twists and turns. So much so that I like stories that run to more than one book. For me reading is far better than movies or the TV. I write because I want to give the pleasure that I have received to others who love a good story. These are people, who read every day. They read before they go to sleep to get away from the stresses of their day. They read because they love it. These are the people that I’d like to reach and provide pleasure to. These are the people that it would be my privilege to please with a story they enjoy. I write to find these people and for them to find me. Hope that answers the question.

On that note, here is chapter 13 of the serialized novel, called Crisis Management. Please send me your comments and suggestions.
