It was an honor to be asked to take part in the first issue of Lost in Thought Magazine. I was paired with artist Jared Meuser and wrote a short story around his illustration “Creeping Flower.” The story is called “The Problem with Keeping,” and in addition to being featured in this first issue of Lost in Thought, it was an award winner in the most recent Glass Woman Prize.
Editor Kyle Schruder was kind enough to allow me to share the story and illustration below. I’m also including the magazine’s website and ordering information, in case you’d like to purchase the full issue, as well as a link to some of Jared Meuser’s artwork. Thanks for taking a look.
