This page shall henceforth be my page of short stories. Most of these will be stories I wrote for contests that unfortunately did not win. Nonetheless, I feel they are worth sharing.
Despite not being award-worthy, I hope you enjoy the stories as I enjoyed writing them.
Let's start with one of my favorite monthly competitions: Furious Fiction
In their own words:
'On the first weekend of every month, you are invited to put your storytelling skills to the test in the ultimate writer-takes-all short story competition. Armed only with our simple brief, your job is to race the clock to come up with your best 500 words-or-fewer story and be in to win a tasty $500 – every single month.'
I personally love the stopwatch and criteria they put for each contest. I have yet to win this competition, but I have enjoyed the few I have participated in. Below are the ones I have entered to date.
