Short Story

This isn't much of a post. Just thought I'd stick up the link to this short story of mine,"Anticipation," running in The Cynic this month.

You'll see why it fit that particular publication. The story is completely fictional (this did not happen to me, or anyone I know)but it was inspired, a bit, by a friend of mine who lived a couple of doors down my Freshman year. Her roommate and her liked the same guy. Sometimes I wonder if they lay in bed at night plotting ways to make the other look stupid. Hmm, an idea for another story?


  1. Hey, I thought this wasn't running until July!

    It is a cool story, and I still think you could expand on this and make a book out of it.

  2. I'm going to get over there and read it!

  3. "What Happened Next" is running in Muscadine Lines in July-Sept.

    Well, Nikki's definitely a character kinda in the Bridget Jones fashion. I think we'll be hearing from her again in the future. I've got some ideas.

  4. Oh, I forgot WHN was running again :). Sorry, can't keep 'em all straight. I can barely keep my own stories straight!

  5. Shawna! You got me! I can't beleive it!

    Good story! You really have some great humor :)
    Love it!
