I’m going to court.

Yes, it’s true. If you read in the paper that Mike Dellosso was charged with 3 counts of DUI don’t believe a word of it. Because it’s not true.

Wednesday I received a letter stating that I was to appear in court. The charges ranged from DUI to running a stop sign to driving with a revoked license and expired registration to having “improper” tires on my car.

Of course, it’s not true. I would never put improper tires on my car.

I went to the courthouse to sort the whole mess out and, well, it seems I have to appear in court.

Now, here’s what I want to do with this. How would you like to co-write a short story with me to be self-published as an e-book? Sound like fun? I think so.

Here’s what you have to do: In 10 sentences or less, describe how you see this story unfolding. Now by sentences I mean normal sentences, not some of those Biblical run-on mammoths. I’m giving you through next week and on Friday the 11th I’ll announce the big winner, the story that intrigues me the most. And you can enter as many different ideas as you like.

How to enter: Post “I’m in” as a comment to this post then send your idea to michael_dellosso (at) yahoo.com. Just substitute @ for (at) . . . need to ward off spam and hackers.

I will then work with the winner to develop a full short story we will write and e-publish together.

Are you in?

Oh yeah, on the 11th I’ll also tell you the truth behind this whole court appearance thing.
