Retooling when the focus is off

One short story I’m finalizing has the working title “Plenty of Catfish.” It is about my misadventures online dating and is intended as a comedy.

I showed it to a female friend, a teacher whom I know I can depend on for an honest assessment.

“Each date seems to revolve around the same topic,” she said to me.

As I read it, I realized the story was too one-dimensional and that the humor was lost in that aspect.

Off to retool…
