Just a little holiday reading recommendation…
Official Site of Alex Laybourne - Author
The Summer holidays are fast approaching, and for some they have already arrived. This means rest and relaxation, fun in the sun, sitting by the pool, on the beach, or in the garden of you house or a location in some far off field of a foreign land. The question is, ‘what do we do with all of this time?’ Well if you are anything like me, you will be playing with the kids, running around in the pools and … oh yeah, reading. The summer holidays provides the perfect opportunity to catch up with our favorite books and authors, or even to find new writers bodies of work that we enjoy.
For me, short stories and shorter pieces of fiction make excellent holiday reading. Perfect bite-sized chunks to read beside the pool, just long enough to keep us occupied in between drinks, meals, dips into the pool or episodes…

Thank you Catherine. 🙂
You are welcome Alex!
short stories become popular in this scenario1
Short stories are an excellent way to learn about writing. I think it is sad that so few people still go that traditional route of short stories, magazine subs and the like, working their way up to novel length pieces of work.
Thank you Maurice, yes I agree it is a good idea.
