#YearOfReadingShorts

readingcigar Part of Cheffo’s Big Plan(tm) for writing in 2017 is to read at least one short story each day. I plan to concentrate on short stories in part because I have a huge backlog of quality shorts in my TBR and because I need to read more critically and learn from a wide variety of work from great writers.
Here is what I have read so far in 2017.
