Head over to the Short Story page for a new short story, MINOR WAYS OF BEING. I wrote this story at the start of 2015 and it was longlisted for the International Fish Short Story Competition. Near the end of 2014, I watched an interview with Zadie Smith, in which she was asked why she didn’t have much of a presence on social media. Her reply, and I am paraphrasing here, was that she supposed it was a minor way of being. The phrase turned in my head for some time before this story came to me. I hope you enjoy it.
