It's a Birthday Contest and You're the Winner. Maybe.
First off, it's my son's birthday, so Happy Birthday J!
Now that my personal business is taken care of, how about something fun. In honor of number one son's big day, I'm going to have a little writing exercise. Just something fun to kill a little time.
How about a flash fiction mystery featuring a birthday and a character who's name starts with the letter J. A one-hundred word mystery. I'm not counting words, so it doesn't have to be exact, but let's police ourselves on this one and keep to the spirit of the contest. The birthday boy and I will read the stories and pick a winner.
Winner receives a copy of my short story collection Nine Kinds of Trouble, so get those keyboards ready. Contest ends Tuesday the 22nd at noon. I'll post the winning story on the blog on Wednesday the 23rd.
I love flash fiction, so get those keyboards humming.
