If you were an aging alcoholic who spent most of the last years of your life homeless…and finally landed a job as a bus boy…what would your last dream be?
“The Bus Boy” by Nancy Ellen Dodd is a short story used as an example in The Writer’s Compass: From Story Map to Finished Draft in 7 Stages. For free access to read “The Bus Boy” go to http://issuu.com/smudgedinkpress/docs/thebusboy. The story is in text and illustrated formats.
I especially want to thank all of the photographers who posted work for others to enjoy and generously allowed me to use their photos to illustrate “The Bus Boy”:
Neil Gould, Scott D. Deardorff, Jim Ario, D. Sharon Pruitt, Kriss Szkurlatowski, Alfonso Lima, Eva Shuster, kgreggain.
I hope you enjoy their work as much as I do.
