I’m very excited about this one – I took a chance and entered a flash fiction writing contest on MashStories.com and I got shortlisted! Which means my story is published on their site and a podcast episode will be recorded featuring my story, “Smolder.”

MashStories holds four competitions a year and the only requirements for entry are that your story is 500 words or less and it uses three keywords (provided during each competition). The keywords for my competition were: Ankle, Fashion and Criminal.

You can read my story here: Smolder

While I didn’t win the contest this round I learned that I came in 5th! Not too shabby!

You can now hear the podcast version of the story here:


[UPDATE: Looks like the old episodes have been taken down but I’m leaving the link here in hopes that I can find a copy.]
