Hi guys! This is Laura Jane, coming at you live from sitting in my bed cross-legged and wearing pyjamas. I recently woke up to the extremely cool surprise of finding out that a short story I wrote, "The Names Of All The Flowers," is up today on one of Strawberry Fields Whatever's best-blog-friends, Ohio Edit.
HERE is the story itself.
I am so happy this story exists and is out in the world living and breathing in its new home. Like most of my stories, it's about my homegirl Samantha Silver, nothing too exciting, waking up in the morning and living a day and procrastinating cleaning her bathroom and walking to the drugstore and drinking wine. It's about broken phone screens, a cat falling off a roof, and Denny Wilson's death.
I like to write because I like to say what happened. My writing is a celebration of how boring it is to be alive.
