Six Sentence Sunday! “The Project”

A few years ago I was lucky enough to sell a short story to GRIT Magazine – it was one of my first professional sales and I was thrilled, to say the least. I later put it up on Amazon with a homemade cover and right now it’s FREE for the taking…

The Project

Jeff McAllister’s wife, Jessie, loved her quilts and her computer. But now she’s gone, and Jeff has to figure out how to survive without her and how to deal with her online legacy. With the companionship of his faithful Golden Retriever, he begins the toughest project of his life, still grieving over his loss. This short story was originally published in the August 2005 issue of GRIT Magazine.


“Dear friends…” He paused, unsure how to start. She so loved this particular bulletin board; she had spent hours on it while he worked on yet another project in the shop. So many new ideas here; so many new friends, so many…

“Dear friends of Jessie – this is her husband, Jeff. I’m sorry to tell you that she passed away a week ago from a sudden heart attack.”


I hope you’ll come on over and grab a free copy while you can – have a great day and fantastic Six Sentence Sunday!
