SYNOPSIS
A new year dawned and I suddenly determined to challenge myself with shortage of time. In brief, I would write a short short story every day in succession. This little book contains some of the results.
 
To be honest (generally a foolish thing for a writer to be) a short  written on a Monday requires a Tuesday as well. On Tuesday, you edit, you correct, you knock out ungainly sentences, you amplify . . . for you may suddenly discover a new meaning that had never occurred to you on the Monday. So you in effect rewrite. That's what Tuesdays are for . . . the writing of tiny masterpieces.
 
Most of these stories are fairly dark, glowing with gloom.  I like it that way.
