As you might have heard via my Twitter feed or my Facebook page, my short story, December, made it to the second and final round of the NYC Midnight Short Story contest! At 11:59PM tonight, I’ll be receiving a Genre and an Object, and I’ll have 24 hours to write a 2,500 short story to compete for the grand prize! EEEK! Wish me luck!
And in the meantime, please enjoy my short story, December. The Genre I was given was “A Ghost Story.” My object? “A Piano.” I’m actually rather proud of how this turned out! I’d never written a ghost story before, but I think this ended up being appropriately creepy! I’ll let you lot be the judges:
