I‘ve completely skipped beating around the bush! Let’s all be honest to ourselves, beating around the bush a little can be a lot of fun!
But I’ve still decided not to & to come to the point straight with the heading of this blog post.
I wrote a short story last year, but I wasn’t satisfied with it. Someone was kind enough to share his honest constructive critical opinion on it. I couldn’t agree more with him, I knew I could do better.
So I wrote another one, which I just self published on Kindle Direct Publishing.
I just wanted to ask you if you would like to read my short story. The short story is available to read for free for a limited period of 5 days, you won’t have to buy it.
We’ve been connected through blogging & wordpress for a while & I really value & respect your views & opinions. It would mean a world to me if you would consider reading it & sharing your honest opinion on it.
Mangal the Salesman | A Short Story
“…It’s been there for a long time, the previous generation grilling the obsession through the skulls of the new ones. You begin going to school and you’ll start hearing from all directions, ‘if you don’t study as well as you could, you’ll never get a job.’ And I dare say, if they mean anything but a government job when they say the word ‘job!’ No other job can ever be qualified enough to be called a job but a government job! There are two exceptions though, which I almost forgot to mention.
You grow up to be a government employee or a doctor or an engineer, there are no other alternative professions. If you show interest in any other profession you’ll be advised against it because it’s not as good, safe, secure or having potential as the above three…”
