Price: Free! Words: 710. Language: English. Published: March 19, 2013. Categories: Fiction » Literary collections » American / General, Fiction » Gay & lesbian fiction » Lesbian
(5.00 from 1 review)
"Me--Molly" is my entry in NPR’s Round Ten of their occasional feature, “Three Minute Fiction.” In this case, each story had to be written as a voice-mail message.” Had to be dialogue, right? I thought, "This is my chance." They did select a story with a similar theme, but--in my opinion--it didn't convey much power or emotion. See what you think, and let me know.
