Hey Author, got a Short Story for me to read?

So, I may have mentioned before that I am putting together a short story collection.

Working Title: LEAVE & Other Stories Short & Shorter.

I have most of it in place but it needs one or two more stories to round it out.

And…

I’m stuck.

In a rut.

Shootin’ blanks.

One beer short of a six-pack…

Huh? Wait.

Anyway…

I haven’t been making much progress lately so I got to thinking…

Yeah I know, I know.

Anyway, I got to thinking that maybe if I read something really good, really fresh, it could jigger my brain back into its creative mode and I could get these last couple stories knocked out.

So what do you say, Author?

Got a short story for me to read?

If so, please cut and paste your 5000 words or less story into the comment block on the Contact page and send it to me by midnight, Thursday, April 16, 2015.

I will read all that I receive and then post the one I like best here on the ol’ blogaroo at 8PMish, not this Friday but the next, April 17, 2015, and invite the author to share a guest post with us right here on the aforementioned blogaroo.

If you have the story posted somewhere on your blog, tell us about it in the comment section and leave us a link. But for it to be selected, you must email it to me as ‘xplained above.

Cool?

Awesome.

You and your short story will really be doing me and my brain a big favor.

  1. Kurt, I send you the short story, but it may be easier to read on my blog. Here’s the link, just in case: Prequel to The Beauty Thief. There are a whole bunch of #BlogBattle short stories on/connected to my blog, too! Maybe something will stir some inspiration for you!

    The office guy who can’t take a leave.
    He gets up in the morning looking in the mirror how he has grown up while he shaves for his routine.He misses his college fun and wishes to sleep while he glances at that ticking clock .Mom will not make you breakfast today and prepare your lunch box ,you are too old for these.People will readily write sick applications but today you’ll not ask for these.Now you are on your own.In the wee hours of the morning, i watch a grown up office guy who still misses his child’s sleep.The office guy who can’t take a leave.
