Short Story published in Scribble
My short story, The Butter Dish, will be published in the Scribble Magazine!!! (It's not yet confirmed which issue.)
What inspired me to write the story was buying a butter dish in a charity shop in a moment of a nostalgia ... (I didn't even eat "real" butter at the time). Buying the totally wrong birthday present for a friend's daughter (not a butter dish) was another inspiration. Tim - a writer friend - said he admired my ability to find inspiration in every day life. Well, write what you know as they say ... But the story is not really about butter dishes and birthday presents. It's more about being bitter ... I thought about calling the story The Bitter Dish at one stage ...
Thanks to Brian M and Tim P for feedback. And to Rachel for some nice comments.
