The Art of Being Messy is my latest entry into the Pen to Publish 2021 contest. It is a mix of pop culture, personal revelations and real life adult situations wrapped up into a fictional short story that you can enjoy in under an hour. The story follows Mrs. Selah Benafine, a Secretary who can’t seem to remember that she is a married woman. There seems to be a little conflict amongst her and a few of her coworkers over whether or not their boss, Mr. Degrassi can have a wife along with the other women in his life.
