Another Beautiful Birthday Reading -- Lori Fischer reading "Pretty"

I wrote the story "Pretty" several years ago. It's a special piece to me because it was my introduction to the literary ezine I've edited for the last few years: Metazen. Life has become very full and quite complicated recently, so Metazen will be taking a hiatus until autumn. If I am at all able to continue with this litzine, I will.

I love Lori Fischer's reading of "Pretty". She nails the feelings of this little girl so trapped by her mother's expectations of the world.

Here is Lori Fischer, wildly talented screenwriter and actress, reading the flash "Pretty":

Once again, thank you to Lori Fischer for making this birthday pretty.

I must be off,
Christopher
