I just won Granta’s One Sentence Story Competition

It must be because we bought new desks and chairs. This one sentence story, and pretty much everything else of mine out there, I wrote pre-desk—-but ever since we brought these desks home things have been pretty great. I’ve won a couple of competitions and my back and knees don’t hurt so much.

Between Granta, the Kenyon Review, and Insignificant Theatre, the only thing that would make this week better is if I were to meet and marry the love of my life.

But I have already met him, and we are already married. And now we have matching desks.
