Those of you who know me know I love, love, love the short story. The Center for Fiction is a great website for many short stories, from people you know and people you've never heard of. And, it's also a great resource for writers.
The above link is for Ann Hood's story "Hum." This is my kind of story. Character-driven, family-oriented, a little dark, with crisp, clear dialogue and images that will stay with you for a very long time. I think it's just about perfect--I'd love to hear what you think of it!
