Alan Cumyn (who is my advisor this semester) suggested I start out writing short stories - as they are longer than a picture book, but not so long-winded as a novel.
Totally makes sense!...but what's a short story??
Today I read: A&P by John Updike (awesome!)
The Bogman's Wife by Alan Cumyn (great twist and youthful tone!)
And an article from the New Yorker about crafting short stories... it's a start!
...and the ideas in my head are starting to plod along.
