WELCOME TO DECEMBER PROJECT!
this explanation/intro will be posted before each day’s short story. scroll down to get to the story-review.
this is the FOURTH year of me doing a short story advent calendar as my december project. for those of you new to me or this endeavor, here’s the skinny: every day in december, i will be reading a short story that is 1) available free somewhere on internet, and 2) listed on goodreads as its own discrete entity. there will be links provided for those of you who like to read (or listen to) short stories for free, and also for those of you who have wildly overestimated how many books you can read in a year and are freaking out about not meeting your 2019 reading-challenge goals. i have been gathering links all year when tasty little tales have popped into my feed, but i will also accept additional suggestions, as long as they meet my aforementioned 1), 2) standards.
if you scroll to the end of the reviews linked here, you will find links to all the previous years’ stories, which means NINETY-THREE FREEBIES FOR YOU!
reviews of these will vary in length/quality depending on my available time/brain power.
so, let’s begin
i liked this one very much, and i especially like that one of the panels has a little secret nestled in it that will burst out at you unexpectedly, and i especially especially like that this is sort of a christmas story, a day or two (okay, three) too late.
i am too weary and sad and grouchy to write more today. i am still mad at goodreads for messing with my project and too tired from my dumb life to fake good cheer, but i’m very grateful for graphic shorts, because i do not have the energy to read AND visualize and i’m glad for anything that takes away part of my burden.
this one is fun and pretty and spooky, and i’m hoping for better days in 2020 please please ffs please.
