Short Story: 10 Years by Sarah W.

Another story about my character Warren Cowell. This one is set in 1994 when he’s celebrating his tenth birthday with his crazy family, awaiting that arrival of classmates that don’t really seem to like him or understand his offbeat behavior. If you want more stories about this character there are dozens on this blog, but two of the more recent ones are here and here.

Short Story: With Families Like These… by Sarah W.

Boy, Back, Lonely, Child, Depressed, Young, Anime

Hello all! This is a short story written by me the centers around the protagonist of a manuscript I wrote. In the manuscript he’s in his 30’s so obviously a lot has changed in his life but I decided to try writing about him as a 12-year-old. With Families Like These… is set on Thanksgiving and is narrated by a smart but socially awkward and sexually ambiguous boy trying to survive the holiday season. I’d be thrilled if anybody would take the time to read this and share their thoughts.

My mom has worked for all of my life, but soon she’s going to have to go through her first official job interview in twenty years.
