Indiana Review publishes outstanding fiction. I read all the short stories in the current issue yesterday and felt wistful afterwards. My first love, my first intention, was to write short stories then I tripped on poetry (and it was as clumsy as that, I tripped) and left prose behind. I've got this notion that I might, possibly, try?, to write a novel. (Jenni has recommended a couple of excellent craft books, and if you have any recommendations please, do) The other notion I have is to write a page-turner, a good can'tstopreadinguntilIfindouthowitends book. I know this is blasphemy in some circles, particularly in our circle, but there it is -- also in this little notion fantasy I write when the kids are at school and I publish under my married name. I have quite the imagination.
