I'm beginning to think that writing pop stories is a revolutionary act! I've received few good ones for consideration. Which leaves the field open for myself. I can easily claim to be the best pop short story writer in America.
In my opinion, if you're a writer you should be able to write anything. The benefit to writing new-style "pop" is that it's strangely liberating. Writing good pop requires MORE creativity and imagination than writing the standard literary story. I intend to demonstrate this.
