I entered the NYMidnight 100 word Microfiction short story contest in April. View my earlier post: Short Story Competition.
This week I found out I was in the top 15 in my genre group! I moved on to Round 2!
I received my new assignment at midnight last night. Unfortunately it was Horror, my least favorite. I wracked my brain all night and today, exhausted from lack of sleep, I finally came up with a short horror story and cut it down and down and down to get it to 100 words or less. I just submitted it. One hour to spare till the deadline! Phew!
I know this is not my forte, but I hope I did well enough to move on to the Final round and can get a familiar genre where I can show some talent. I’ll know in a month.
