Today is the last post of 12 discussing the stories in my forthcoming Measuring Time & Other Stories (out in September from Wiseblood Books). For the past months, I’ve been sharing the composition history of these stories that I’ve worked on and lived with for years. I’ve enjoyed journeying back in time and reflecting on these stories, and I’m excited for readers to enter the fictional worlds I’ve created.
It’s mid-August in Central Texas, which means that it’s even hotter than it was when last I wrote in this space. At the end of the previous week, I finished my final edits on the final proof of Measuring Time & Other Stories (out next month from Wiseblood Books). And today, I’m reflecting on one of my favorite stories in the book: “The Rez Fairy.”
I’m in the process of reviewing the final proof for the forthcoming Measuring Time & Other Stories (Wiseblood Books), and it is August in Texas, which means a surplus of sun and heat. A friend visiting his family back in Finland texted me today that it was 66 degrees. That sounds lovely. I’m a little jealous.
