She underestimated the power of nature.
New story Don't bring me Down - at One Page Lit.
Please share if you like it. It's never easy getting the words out there. One Page is a good publication too. They offer a voice for the underdog. With the amount of snobbery in the Australian Literary scene (and the world in general), God knows we need it.
Felt like I was there, nice tense story, with a sudden change from being a story about courage to being one about cowardness - caving into perceived peer group pressure. I had a friend who drowned when he tried to save another person, but he was the guide of a raft on the Franklin river in Tassy, so he basically had a duty to at least attempt to save one of his passengers who had fallen out. Wonder what was going through his mind at that moment.ReplyDelete
I think I remember this one. You appropriately bring power and ferocity to the scene: an anxiety-provoking human vs nature struggle. Very well written, my friend. xoReplyDelete
