My reading list grows exponentially. Everytime I read a book, it'll mention three other books I feel I have to read. It's like a particularly relentless series of pop-up ads.

Short Story Contest

So, in an attempt to get out of my writing funk, I submitted a short story to a contest. I'd love it if you guys would go check it out.

In order to win, I have to have more than 15 comments and 30 ratings (you actually have to give it a thumbs up, not just give it a star rating).

So, if you have a spare moment, I'd love for you to read it and let me know what you think. It's actually an adult short story (gasp!) and it's only 500 words, so it won't take long to read through it!

Thanks in advance guys! Here's the link. :)

How did you do in the competition? I liked the story. You did a nice job of evoking the senses with some of the details. I also liked the element of suspense building throughout.
