“It doesn’t have that pop!”

Above were the words of my husband today as he read a short story I’d forced myself to write based on a writing prompt. I often wonder why it is that when my stories do have “that pop”, it’s always the stories that come out of nowhere.

My attempts at writing short stories this summer have so far been successful in quantity (six!), but lacking in quality (maybe 1). Time to add oil, as they say here. Or in my case, add coffee. -LLP
