As you may recall, or click the link to read anew, I made it through Round One with, The Bully King, incorporating the 3 requirements: Fairy Tale, Bully, and Acceleration. I advanced to Round Two where I submitted a piece called Done Deal, based on: Drama, Trustee, and Touch Screen. What?! Yeah, I found that assignment a bit more difficult to work with.
I did not make the Top 5.
I’m not surprised, but still a bit disappointed.
Deep sigh aside, drama is a hard genre for me. And also, I don’t really know what Trustees do. Based on the comments by the judges, they agree. You can read what they had to say here.
So that’s all I’ll write for NYC Midnight Short Story Challenge this year.
It was a great experience. I enjoyed writing the short stories. I enjoyed the challenge. I look forward to participating again.
In the meantime…
I’m seriously considering starting a DeKalb area writers’ group!
