Not familiar with your work until now, clicked on the restack that someone posted on Notes.
I know I don't need to tell you how good it is, but I will anyway. This is brilliant writing. This is perfection.
Alright fine, I'll give you money.
Brutal. I often wonder if my dad bailing pre-first birthday was a blessing. My narrator riffs on that concept quite a bit in my novel.
There's so much to like here, but craft-wise I just love how economical your pieces are. The Disney spot is pitch perfect: it's clear something horrible happened, and by withholding the details the reader assumes their own worst possible interpretation. Goddamned masterful, my friend.
Fantastic. This made me lol: “In short, we don’t offer genetic testing for domestic violence.” Also, this: “Don’t send more blood. You’ve sent enough blood.”
Not sure if you were going for poignancy, but that's where this one hit for me.
Funny, yes. But heart-pinchy, too.
A land mine waiting for a foot. Hehehe. Adding diversity to skin cancer. You've got some beauties.
Loved the way you tuck things under the surface here. Got Everything Abridged in my TBR pile, looking forward to getting to it soon.
