I participated in the Short Story Challenge hosted by NYC Midnight at the beginning of this year. I did not advance thru to the second round, but 1) that’s not what writing challenges are about, and 2) it was super stiff competition:
Despite not advancing thru, I am still very proud of my submission. It was inspired by a true love story and I loved being able to manifest a RomCom for one of my favorite couples. I hope you enjoy it.
