Read Therapy Cat from the collection Alligators At Night. Write a story about a character with invisible scars. The scars may manifest themselves in humorous ways, as in this story. Let the story revolve around resulting complications caused by the original damage.
Read Eggfoot originally published in Volume One, Brooklyn Magazine. This story is in the collection Alligators At Night. Write a story about messy love (love that is ill-advised, insane, dangerous, unexplainable, impractical, etc.)!
Write a social media parody story! These can be so much fun to write. Here’s one of mine, Mr. McNaughty, published by The Short Story (TSS publishing). This story appears in my new collection Alligators At Night under the title “Poking”.
