Guess What? Short Stories are kinda fun!
This year, just to see what would happen, I entered the NYC Midnight Short Story contest (click HERE for more info). Out of over 4500 entrants, I got THIRD PLACE overall! What?
Three rounds. They give you the genre, subject and character. You get a week and 2500 words the first round, three days and 2000 words the second round, and 24 hours and 1500 words the third round. If you are a writer of ANY KIND, I strongly encourage you to try it. It stretched my brain, and had a ton of fun, but most of all, it lit a new fire under my ass…
short stories and blogs and novels, oh my!
Back to the laptop I go!
