Rejection Bites!

Last Thursday, The Daytona Beach News-Journal announced the winners of their annual scary story competition. Out of 380 entries, I was not the winner, or the honorable mention for my age group. That's life.

My story was called "Puppies and Candy". It was about a serial killer who was calling to introduce himself, or scare, one of his future victims, a fourteen year old girl. The twist: instead of getting scared, she is happy to get a phone call and begs him to call her again.

At some point, I will polish it some more and send it off to another magazine. This month I am too busy with NaNoWriMo.
