Pink Pastures


365 Tomorrow's published my speculative flash fiction "Pink Pastures." The story was based on a dream, and since I can't afford a therapist on a teacher's salary, I resorted to a poor substitute (something I also know about, being a teacher). Ursula Le Guin's "The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas" influenced the setting, plus I really wanted to write about eldritch genitalia without using the word "vagina." You'll notice the comments aren't exactly forgiving; in my defense, my "purple prose" could have been intentional on a meta-level (It's not). 365 Tomorrows is an online journal that produces a new speculative fiction every single flipping day. The site would be a great complement to your morning bagel and cup of raktajino.
