The Canvas

Let me shout out to Perspectives Magazine, which has published a short story of mine, The Canvas, in its July, 2009 issue. The magazine’s tagline is, “where inanimate objects have their say,” and my story is told by a canvas with a violent distrust of its painter.

You can find it here:

Somewhere on that page is a way to buy the magazine, and somewhere else is a way to preview it online; you can read my story and many others.

    I really like the story. I’ve never thought about canvas having feelings.

    I noticed you haven’t updated in awhile. Sometimes I don’t write because I’m busy. Other times I’m too happy or sad to even try to transform what is happening into pretty strings of words. Whatever is keeping you from writing, go with it. I’ll be here when you get back.

    Would love to read this story, but your link doesn’t work. I am however Tweeting about you.

      Thanks for the heads-up. I guess I’ll have to take the link down. I am planning to start a section where I put stories that have been published on the website maybe a few months after the printing. In the meantime, you’re totally welcome to read the story. Send me a twitter DM with your email, or email somerled@secretvespers.com and I’ll email the story back.

    You know there is a song by Imogen Heap called “Canvas,” thought you’d take a listen to that. It is wonderful.
