Tinsel Wings

Today I've officially entered the Observer's Graphic Short Story Prize. It's my second time entering the competition and I think I've got a great shot this year with this story, 'Tinsel Wings.' It's about love, yeah, as usual, but it's more about managing expectations. It's about coming to the realization that just because someone is great, doesn't mean they're the one, and the responsibility those feelings and that knowledge comes with. I always try to be honest with myself, and in this story I believe I've gotten as close to my core as I've ever been.

Before you read it I want to say thank you to my friends, colleagues and editors with whom I could not have made this short story as good as it is. Thank you Kathleen Sanders and Alexis Bergamo for the edits, the re-writes, the honest opinions and the strikingly accurate analysis of my psyche.

Also a special thank you to Kathleen for the quote by Marvell. Marking parties are good for something...

I hope you like it.

Wish me luck!
