Those of you who read this blog know I balked at writing a short story last year. Then I did it and it was published in the anthology HELL OF A WOMAN. From there it was picked to be included in A Prisoner of Memory: And 24 of the Year's Finest Crime and Mystery Stories. This came as a great surprise to me.
However, in cleaning out a trunk I found a rolled up scroll which turned out to be a certificate of merit in recognition of winning Honorable Mention in the Regional Scholastic Writing Awards for New Jersey. Yes, for a short story. I have no memory of this or the story I wrote when I was fourteen.
I guess I wrote short stories back then.
Coming up at the end of the week is my first try at Flash Fiction. It’s okay, I didn’t know what FF was either when I heard about it. It isn’t much, but I actually wrote something.
