What's that? I have another publication this month? Yes, yes I do.
My end-of-the-world flash piece The Storm was published today over at the very cool Eschatology site. Check it out! And leave a comment if you enjoyed it or semi-enjoyed it.
This story is different because it's written in 2nd-person POV, which there seems to be not a whole lot of love for. I believe it's a perfectly valid POV that can work well when the story calls for it, and I aim to make it work!
For the occasion, I made a picture:
It doesn't capture what I had in my mind--it was far creepier--but not bad, if I do say so myself. I drew some inspiration from some of the wicked sand storms we have out here in Arizona. We also have some pretty bad fires. I recall this one day in July how the sky was smoggy, no blue, and the clouds had this yellow-ish hue. It was very surreal.
Anyway, hope you enjoy the story and watch out for those clouds!
