Characters

My nonfiction piece “Characters” appears in the Summer 2009 issue of Flashquake, a really great site with flash (less than 1000 words) fiction and nonfiction pieces coupled with cute banner graphics and an interesting stipend system (with pay based on the editors’ collective enthusiasm for the piece). After taking a creative nonfiction class during my senior year, I’m glad to see most of those pieces see the light of the computer screen. “Characters” was actually originally written for an audio project, but—given my voice-acting—probably makes for a better read on the page.
