Ok, so the other night I was browsing the blogs I'm subscribed to and came across Mysti's blog Unwritten.
She is running a contest of some sort where everyone who enters has to write a short story (very short, under 1000 words) that all start with the same line.
Normally I wouldn't bother to write up a submission because even though I love to write I just don't feel that I'm actually that good at it. However this night was different because.... well... well because it was going on 1 am and I was bloody tired and the "better judgement" sensors in my brain had already been shut off for the day. So, I typed something up then went back and made a few minor edits and sent it off for submission.
I didn't actually submit this hoping to win anything and, in fact, after reading through the rules for submitting I never even paid attention to what could be won or how things were even voted upon. I submitted this because I like to write and I wanted to write and deep down I just kind of hoped someone would enjoy it.
So - I'll just provide a link to my (now printed) submission for anyone who wants to go read my very short story.
Also, dig my sexay pic at the end!
