New Year, New Writing Competition

I’m excited to learn that Mash Stories has now shortlisted my story, Weatherstripping.  And what does being shortlisted mean? (Apart from the obvious, I mean.)  It means immediate publication on their site and eventually narration of the story on the Mash Stories podcast.  Exciting and nerve-wracking.  Will I have the guts to listen to it?  We’ll see.

Backing up a bit, Mash Stories runs a competition based on random word prompts.  They provide three words and a 500 word limit and it is up to you to build a story from there.  The words this quarter are blow-dryer, cockpit, and honesty.  And from those three words, the submissions seem to be incredibly varied and a lot of fun to read.  Worth checking out, if you haven’t already.
