make a million for you overnight

Stories, poems, essays. 
All written on paper bags.

That is the intriguing premise for a new creative website founded by my friend Corinne Litchfield. It's a beautiful tribute to her mother, with whom she used to exchange letters written on airline sickness bags.

When asked if I was interested in getting in on the paper bag action, my answer, of course, was an unqualified hell yes!  

I am honoured to be the featured writer of PaperBagWriters' Thanksgivukkah edition with my story A Manual for Living with Defeat. I am not sure where the narrator of the story came from, but I am pretty sure I don't want to be hitching a ride with him.

I invite you to take a glance at my little story. Do check out some of the other fine submissions over at PaperBagWriters, while you are there. After all, it's not every day you find a story on your lunch bag.

It truly is, Metalheadfairy, and I am delighted to contribute (in my non-romantic way).

Very cool! The idea, your story, you!

I agree with at least one of the above, Dale!
