One thing I love about writing short stories is the challenge of trying new ideas. My latest story came about through such a challenge.
One of the many podcasts I listen to is Writing Excuses, and a recent episode was all about food in stories. It seemed to focus on the way food could be used to highlight culture and character, but it got me thinking. I wondered if I could write a story where food was actually important—vital, even—to the story itself.
The result is Food For Thought, which you can read here. And, as always, I’d love to hear what you think of it.
