WINNER!! “Who Wants to Write a Short Story With Me” Contest
Wow, what a great collection of story ideas. Choosing just one was not easy and honestly it came down to about five minutes ago (as of the writing of this post at 5:45 this morning).
I’d like to say again that just because your story idea wasn’t chosen doesn’t mean it’s not any good. There were a lot of great ideas, creative, inspiring, intriguing, entertaining. Not all were appropriate for a short story, though. In fact, I was able to narrow the field pretty quickly by eliminating the concepts that would require much more than 10,000 words.
There were several that really caught my imagination. Some were surprisingly simple but sometimes it’s the most simple things that make the greatest impact.
Please, if you submitted a story idea and you’re interesting in writing or you are a writer . . . pursue it. Don’t wait. Make the time. Get help if you need it. But do something with it. You have an idea, a concept, a starting point, now go for it!
Okay, not to drag this on too much . . . here is the winner of the second “Who Wants to Write a Short Story With Me” contest:
