In the spirit of not passing up an adventure, I entered The Write Practice’s Fall Writing Contest.
Even though writing short stories is tough for me. Maybe my mind is just too complicated (or I make things too complex), but I find it difficult to tell a story in just a few words.
This time the limit was 1500.
And writing to a theme makes it all the more tricky. For this contest, the them was Fall + Love. Anything about falling in love in the fall.
I managed to do it, and came up with a little sci-fi piece called Falling Down to the Stars.
All the entries have been published over at Short Fiction Break. I’d love it if you took a look and left a comment!
