I have been forcing myself to write creatively again and this is the latest (semi-complete) attempt. It is long for a short story, so I figured I would link to the Google document instead of copying and pasting it.
I have heard that a writer should write about what he knows – this story somewhat came out of that idea. The context for this story is cooking (a passion of mine) as well as life in the state of California. I was inspired to write by an incident that happened at my work – the starting point for the character of Henry.
This is a rough draft and will be revised a few times before it is complete. But, for now, enjoy! Let me know your feedback!
