NUEVO VALLARTA, Nayarit, Mexico - My contest entry in the Writer's Weekly 24-hour short story fiction contest is off - sent via email an hour ago.
You receive a prompt from WW, then have to spin off a story from that. It can be very loosely based on the original prompt, but has to still relate. Somehow.
The exercise reminds me of those comedy shows where you hand someone a banana, a banjo and a box of Tide and tell them to weave the three into a series of jokes.
My story came in just under the 900-word limit and I was pleased with it. Thank God the contest was only 24-hours. I could have farbled around with it for days.
If my story wins a prize, I'll send out the link to it. If not, well, I'll post it here for perusal.
And then you will see what the photo below had to do with what I wrote.
