Have you ever tried to write micro-fiction? It isn’t easy to do. I was surfing around one day and came across a contest at Every Writer Magazine. They were hosting a 50 Word Scary Story Contest. Easy and free. All I had to do was write the 50 word story in their comments. I was able to enter more than once, so I wrote about 5.
It’s hard enough to write something with a beginning, middle and end, but it is super hard to do it
in 50 words or less. And Horror….Well not my usual genre. But I gave it a whirl.
I didn’t place first, but I was in the top 3. And it was one of my last entries (I did this over a few weeks time). I guess it proves that my writing in a small space improved.
The top 3 get published in the print magazine. I thought that was neat.
