Back in February I broke my publishing drought of publishing my first new fiction piece since 2006. The piece, entitled Proper Grammar, was inspired by a photograph taken by one of my photography students, Orlando Juarez-Vitela. I gave my students a theme of Story Starter, and they had to submit photos that had quite a lot of story questions. I chose Orlando’s because I could relate to the photo. I wanted to create a piece of narrative from a fictitious teenager in Vancouver, WA. I wanted to write about anti-depressants. I wanted to write about sunshine, and I wanted to write about clouds.
Back in February, the Rusty Nail, for their inaugural issue published Proper Grammar both on the web and in their first print edition.
