This is my third year in a row entering into the Short Story Challenge by NYC Midnight. Both times previously I made it through to the second round, which is certainly a boost in confidence even though I didn’t progress to the third round.
My challenge this year is as follows:
- Genre: Crime Caper
- Subject: Running out of a supply of something
- Character: An orphan
As with my previous challenges, these are genres I don’t generally indulge in when writing stories. So far I’ve been given Fairy Tale, Sci-Fi, Comedy, etc. Mostly I write drama and/or romance.
A challenge this will be indeed!
