My entry for “Jason’s contest”:http://clarityofnight.blogspot.com/2006/06/midnight-road-short-fiction-contest.html is now “posted”:http://clarityofnight.blogspot.com/2006/06/entry-12.html. Go take a gander and lemme know what you think of it.
I must say that I love the 250-word limitation. It forces an economy of words to set up and provide a snapshot of a scene. But I think what is most enjoyable about writing it is the art of leaving it your readers to fill in the gaps from their own imaginations. As much information as I provide, I often aim to raise even more questions.
I’d be curious to know – after reading my story, what are some of the questions that the story raises in _your_ mind? Share them here; I’d love to hear them.
