Today’s Story Time is a piece of original flash fiction, “Ugly Puppies.” The title is a direct hommage to Howard Waldrop’s iconic story, “The Ugly Chickens,” but they otherwise have nothing in common (no comments from the Peanut Gallery, thanks). This piece was done as an assignment from the local writer’s group, where we do a piece of flash every week on an assigned theme word.
Needless to say, that week’s theme word was “secret.”
Standard Reminder: “Ugly Puppies” will remain online until next Wednesday, December 27th, when it will be replaced. By what, I don’t know.
