I often take excerpts from novels I’ve written and rework them into short stories. A friend (Thank you, Perry!) kept a copy of the single issue of , Group 28 (August 1981), and inside I found, in glorious Smith-Corona typeface, one of a few remaining elements from my late-70’s first novel, “Flawed”. It needs an editor, but it has its moments, I will say. It’s also interesting to me, to see myself teaching myself how to write. I never studied “creative writing”, I learned from reading, writing and working with some great editors, copy editors and proofreaders.
