The first LFS short story challenge was a great deal of fun, so I’m going to do another. Based on the sentence below, write a story of anywhere between 500-5000 words. Genre, etc. are wide open. Using the sentence in the story itself is a plus, but not necessary. Meaningless bonus points are added if it’s the first sentence:
Submissions can be emailed to me via emmy @ elepent.com; in deference to the holiday season, the deadline for entries is January 10, 2010.
I look forward to reading your stories!
