Free Style Category: Write whatever you want here

Over the past year, I've been writing short stories that are really part of one, long story. Maybe a novel. I don't know. But I think I'll work in a shorter format for now. I've been reading T.C. Boyle, Chekov, Joyce, Frank O'Conner, David Foster Wallace. I don't really like Wallace's short stories though, with a few notable exceptions. Longer fiction....Franzen, Tolstoy and Philip Roth.


Visual artist/writer looking for writing group with attitude.
