Another “Best Of” List: Nailpolish Stories 2012

This is fun news! My short/flash story, “In My Back Pocket,” a 25-word story inspired by an unusual nail polish color name published back in April, was selected as one of the best of the year! Nailpolish Stories: A Tiny And Colorful Literary Journal chose one story from each monthly issue and published it in a “Best Of” issue. According to the editor:

Pieces were chosen for their unique language, breadth of story in so few words, emotional impact, and the complex and original relationship of the title to its story.

So flattered that my story was picked! If you’re not familiar with the journal already, it might be a great way to get your creative juices flowing in the New Year. Do “Call My Cell-ery,” “Can’t You Sea?,” “Off With Her Red!,” or “A Peony for Your Thoughts?” spark any story ideas for you? If so, consider submitting!

    1. Yes they were! Their website has the best list of colors–it was fun just to page through them all and explore the tidbits of inspiration I got from each name. Did you know they have a MUPPET line of colors, for goodness sake?? And thanks, Lindsey :]
