I entered the 24 Hour Short Story Contest that was Saturday. I wrote my story after I returned from the Write-On Writers Conference. I looked it over on Sunday and sent it out, liking what I read. Later, I had an epiphany that I should have shown an expression, rather than just mentioning it.
I had sent the story to my brother, which he didn't read until after I submitted it. He liked the story and is thinking of a sequel. I am relieved that someone else likes it. And it elicits a response as well. He had the same wa-ha-ha reaction that I felt when I ended the story. And that's exactly what I was going for.
The next 24 Hour Short Story contest is in July.
