What people are saying:
“These are beautiful stories that had me giggling and gasping. Her stories are full of fascinating characters and disturbing situations.”
I’m writing this a few days after reading to see what stayed with me: several sharp descriptions, loss, darkness, and hope. There’s a sense of mystery too.
Tammy’s writing is incredibly visceral and powerful. I found pieces of myself in each story and couldn’t wait to read the next!
PAPER DOLLS – A 100 Word Story
Paper dolls do not have knives in their backs. Coworkers paid attention to my clothes and they made me a paper doll to change my outfits every hour. Another time, Flat Tammy was taken to a writer’s conference. The proof are the posed photos. I made myself paper dolls and used my Bitmoji and scraps from food magazines into collaged outfits I would never wear. Other dolls I made had no face. Today I wear a dress that came from the girls’ section at the store and I am told I look like a doll. If only I was flat.
