Harrison Bergeron

Favorite Short Story – Harrison Bergeron

Harrison Bergeron is the first short story that comes to mind when I think of short fiction. I was 15 or 16 years old when I read it for the first time, and I remember being absolutely terrified of the reality depicted in that story.

I will not ruin it for you, but there is a ballet scene in this story that is at once moving and jarring.

You can find the audio version of Harrison Bergeron on YouTube though I am not entirely sure how legal it is for them to be there. You can read it with your eyeball or your ears in Welcome to the Monkey House by Kurt Vonnegut.

I have never felt so cool.

This is a member’s only magazine in which I am F E A T U R E D! Can you believe this? So stinking cool!

My friends, Hether and Kayla, have this wonderful membership site that is all about self-care. They have a 3-month trial package offered at discount, so you can take a look around and see if their place is a good fit for you.

They definitely overdeliver every time. I highly recommend you take a look around if you’ve been looking for ways to take care of yourself, learn more about everything else, and find people like yourself who are interested in being healthy and a real person at the same time.

Two Short Stories On My Calendar

On my calendar, there are two short stories that I need to write.

One of them needs to be written, edited, and ready to publish on February 11th, and the other needs to be ready in all the same ways by November 3rd.

The story due is February is something for my PFP (Pilgrim Fowl Press) Lily Dae (this is a pen name) mailing list. It is a little thank you gift for them reading my very first book under that name. You can get it too for free if you join the mailing list before February 11th. Here’s a link if you are interested in joining: .

If you have no idea what book I’m talking about, here’s a link to the book on Amazon, so you can read about it: .

The second short story on my calendar is very special to me. They all are, but this short story is the origin story of a character that has lived with me for around 16 years. I feel so guilty for just carrying this character and his friends around with me so long. It is time to tell his stories, but I will admit, I am nervous to write this one.

More on that when it gets closer to becoming a reality, but I can tell you this for now: The genre is fantasy.
