Keep It Short

Jan 3, 2019 · 2,525 words (10 minutes) · 51 views

Humor Mystery

For a while I worked as a journalist for a suburban newspaper. "Keep It Short" was inspired by that job, though, of course, the characters are pure fiction... well, maybe impure fiction. I was trying for a kind of sardonic realism, and in subsequent stories featuring the main character, the push of the stories became more crime-related, weirder and more fictitious. I'm now working on a novel set in this milieu.
