Nobody Wants to Read Your Story
Mateja Klaric

Tell my story. Hmmm. I’m interested. But my stories are science fiction. And they aren’t sad; I’ve had a good life.

My protagonist is a songstress who is fed up with her singing career. By chance she links up with a very non-human alien who is escaping her prescribed singing role. Together they recapture the soul of their singing.

Am I in there? Hell yes, even though I can’t carry a tune. I had to write lyrics for my singers — both human and alien — so then I decided to get somebody to put them to music and sing them. I will soon have five songs!

So their story is my story. And also the story of many others who pass by the road less travelled and stay on the freeway, yet feel something is missing.

Like what you read? Give Mike Van Horn a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
