Sally Wagner’s 100 word microfiction, “To Counter”, will appear in the fifth issue of The Centifictionist (Vol. 3, Issue 1, Spring/Summer 2022). Sally graciously answered a few brief questions for us. Read the interview below.
1. What inspired the story “To Counter”?
My grandfather, who was forced to join the Hitlerjugend after the German annexation of Luxembourg.
2. What inspires you and your writing?
Anything and everything. The places I visit, the people I meet, the food I eat.
3. What keeps you going when experiencing times of misery and despair?
My family, my friends, and the thought that all things must come to an end. Even the bad ones.
4. What advice do you have for microfiction writers?
Make every word count.
5. Is there anything else that you would like people to know about you and/or your writing?
I am a terribly boring person, with a terribly boring life. And I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Sally Wagner is a student, a writer, and a mother of two lovely rabbits. Born and raised in Luxembourg, she especially likes to explore her own country’s history and heritage in her writing.
