Whenever I wrestle a story to the mat and pin it for the full count (an allegory for finishing a first draft), the victory song from THE 5000 FINGERS OF DR. T plays in my head. Yes, I’ve always watched too many movies.
So I finished the first draft of “Still Life With Peanut Butter”, in which Mamie and Florence enter a recipe contest run by a peanut butter factory which wants to create some good buzz to counteract the finding of a dead body on their premises. It’s a short story, so recipes are not included. If the story sells, I’ll post the recipes on this blog.
And I’ll sing the victory song.
Oh, today’s Tuesday, so I’m posting at Fatal Foodies today. It’s about Curry. Tim Curry.
