The literary magazine Bartleby Snopes runs a short story contest every year that’s quite restrictive: no description and no exposition allowed. One must tell a tale using only dialog between characters. My entry is somewhat skewed toward an older demographic and I was laughing out loud as I wrote it. That’s not always a writer’s best guide to quality! “Do you feel lucky, punk” won 3rd prize, so please take a peek when you have time and let me know what you think..
I like to speculate on what might be just around the corner. I did so in my story “Make My Day” and the Saturday Writers fiction contest judges found my speculations (an app for your smart phone that offers classic movie lines?) interesting enough to award it first place in this year’s competition. You’ll have to wait until November or so for the story to be published, but my interview in the Saturday Writers newsletter is here: http://www.saturdaywriters.org/newsletter.html
