It’s a quirky story that I didn’t think would be published. To try to simmer it down to one sentence, the story is about a man trying to deal with more than just the heat.
The catalyst for “I’ll Kill for Rain” was the image of a man sitting in a camp chair with a handgun in his lap. The title came pretty easily. Inscape did suggest some edits to get it closer to flash fiction, and it came in at around 1050 words.
If you have a chance, please give it a read. I hope you enjoy it.
