Currently Listening To: Pierce The Veil – Kissing In Cars
I feel like pounding my skull against an area that is made of brick.I’d do it against my keyboard, but I doubt my laptop, Alchemy, would appreciate that. Mommy and daddy wouldn’t be too pleased with that, either. And I’m at school, so I’d get a tad too many weird looks and a lot of people would ask me questions as to what’s wrong and a lot of them wouldn’t understand the reason if I told them unless all of them write stories. Which would be beyond awesome, but really – what are the chances of that happening?
So, why do I feel the need to bash my brain against some sort of hard surface?Because for the last little while, I’ve been contemplating joining some sort of writing competition. So, on Tuesday, I was talking to one of my friends and she asked me about looking into a short story contest for a local newspaper. So I did, and while I didn’t find one for a newspaper, I found a link to a website that does a free one.
It’s a story that has to be between 100 – 1499 words and it’s flash fiction. And after researching flash fiction, I’ve realized something that makes me want to beat my cranium against a rigid plane.I don’t like flash fiction very much.
Well, the closing date is July 12th, so I guess I’ll pull it together by then. After all, it’s like… two and a half months. Or I’ll, you know, find another contest to do.
- May :)
