While the results are not yet in from round two of the NYC Midnight Flash Fiction Challenge, my submission is. The Flash Fiction Challenge entails a writer creating a full story of no more than 1000 words in 48 hours with a specific location, genre, and an object. The writers are placed into groups of 35 and only the top 15 stories receive points. The top 5 writers from each group at the end of two rounds will move on to round three.
For round two I was given a fundraiser as a location, a doctored photograph as an object, and horror as a genre. I created the short story titled "Deaf Ears". It can be found on my website on the Flash Fiction page, check the site on November 2 for the round two results.
This story is a thriller with a sub-genre of horror. I have been having a lot of fun writing it, but be warned this one is scary. It is available on Channillo.com. As some of you may know it is being released as a serial, one chapter per month, although there is chatter of changing it to every two weeks. In the meantime, chapter 3 is available now.
One of the stories from All That is Left Behind has been submitted for a short story contest, so that book will be delayed slightly. It is an exciting story, which I hope will do well with the judges. It is called The Truth Will Set You Free. Look for more details in the December newsletter.
