nighttime: the birth of a story

callaloo desk

i am so very pleased that my short story “nighttime” has found a home at torch, a wonderful online journal featuring african american women writers. this story was one of the first stories i wrote (or one of the first that i would consider a story). in my 08 i made a resolution to submit to at least 12 publications. i dug up this story and put it into the literary lotto.

i wrote it at my very first writers workshop, callaloo in 2004. the photo above is my desk at callaloo.  i actually blogged about my experience there and the evolution of that story here: this gift , writing in the dark, & writing in the dark, pt 2 .

enjoy!
