When I signed up for Lightning Quick Reads, and I saw the theme schedule, I got a little nervous when I saw the February theme of Love. Mainly because I don’t write about love. At least I haven’t… until now. Come on over to LQR, read my first love story, and please, while you’re there, leave a comment to let me know what you think. Who knows, maybe I’ll start writing romance novels. Then again, maybe not.
For those of you not familiar with it, Lightning Quick Reads is a new short story blog created by Kai Strand. Each month features a new topic, and the participating authors will interpret that topic however they want in a short story. January’s theme is ‘GOALS.’ Today marks my first story. In Foreign Exchange, the narrator recounts a story from his childhood soccer team and his dream of playing goalie. I hope you enjoy it. While you’re there, check out some of the other author’s stories and feel free to leave comments.
