In addition to my 500-word entries about writing, I’ll occasionally interject with a quick note about something somehow related.

This is one of those times.

A talented writer and friend of mine, Sarah Rose Etter, recently published her short story “Koala Tide” in the online literary magazine Bartelby-Snopes.

I recommend it. And if you dig it, remember to vote for Sarah in the story of the month contest.

  1. Hey Nate,

    “Koala Tide” is a very good, and quite unsettling, story. I was most impressed by how Sarah was able to tell it from a child’s perspective and still manage to make it crackle with suspense. Each sense served to increase the overwhelming feeling of dread. I won’t give anything away, but I will say this: “Koala Tide” speaks volumes about how as children we often encounter things before we’re equipped to deal with them. In fact, maybe we become equipped to deal with things only AFTER we’ve experienced them. And the story also speaks volumes about how parents try to protect their kids from the sometimes harshness of reality, and in so doing, end up causing more hurt. Good story, very well written, and it stays with you.
