It’s not often that you find a good fiction blog. Most good blogs tend to be about non-fiction topics from dealing with the day-to-day struggle of living to remembering times past and dealing with them in the present. This week’s award winner is one of those rare specimens of writing, a good fiction blog. Its title is This is Another Story by author and photographer Yinglan.
The blog’s contents include Flash fiction (500 words or less) and Short Stories (500 words or more) and both areas have entire lists of work that she’s published there. My favorite story is “Thoughts in the Air” which is listed first in the Short Story category of her blog. It’s a poignant story of a young woman looking for someone to listen to and help her. There’s a fair amount of tension in the story initially, but it resolves well, which made me happy.
So, Yinglan, here is your award. I hope you enjoy displaying it as much as I enjoyed giving it to you. As for the rest of you, I invite you to visit Yinglan’s blog and see for yourself.
