[Write On Wednesday] Write To Read

This evening I’ll be going out to another short story reading event, and it’s got me thinking about the audiences we write for.

Tonight’s story is adapted from one I wrote a while ago. I’m very happy with how it reads on the page, but when it comes to reading it aloud, I found I needed to cut a lot of description, tighten up the examples, lose some of the more languid language.

This month all the prompts will encourage you to try writing (or adapting) a short story with a specific audience in mind.
