Cozy Read Wednesday: Short Story Sundays (The Short Story Supposition Book 1) by Elizabeth S. Tyree

cozyreadwedThis week’s Cozy Read is a collection of short stories by Elizabeth S. Tyree, Short Story Sundays.  If you’ve ever wanted to be an author, are an author, or just enjoy reading fiction, you’ll probably enjoy these stories.  Writing is a discipline.  It’s important to keep a schedule and write no matter what.  Sometimes, that page just sits there as blank as the look in your eyes.  Sometimes, it only takes a single thought to spark a story.  Sometimes, the blank sheet is the prompt.  What matters is that you keep to that schedule.

shortstorysundaysIn this set of 18 short stories, all were written on consecutive Sundays — hence the title.  They are based on a supposition attributed to Ray Bradbury (of science fiction fame) where he says that you should write a short story every week because “It’s not possible to write 52 bad short stories in a row.”  Each one of these stories is introduced by the author, explaining the idea which sparked the story.

The themes of these short stories range from friends exploring a fixer-upper, to time travel, to points of view of inanimate objects, to original fairy tales.  Some are extremely short, some not so short, most of them light-hearted and only a little bit spooky at times.  I think most importantly, these show struggling authors the process others went through and how every author has days where nothing comes and perhaps that is all you can write about, and it truly isn’t possible to write 52 bad short stories in a row.  You can read these free with Kindle Unlimited.  * * *

Having taught elementary school for more than 25 years and been involved in many amazing technology and curriculum projects, I find I've developed a myriad of interests based on literature I've read and music I've heard. I've followed The Wright Three to Chicago, Ansel Adams to Colorado, The Kon Tiki Expedition to Easter Island, Simon & Garfunkel lyrics to New York City, Frank Lloyd Wright to Fallingwater, Pennsylvania, and have only just begun.
