At the end of last year the Creative Writing Group I attend undertook a “Secret Sentence”, just like a “Secret Santa” but where your “gift” is a writing prompt. I received the phrase “Doing the Christmas Shift Again This Year”. Now I am an infrequent, if not reluctant, writer of prose but on this occasion that’s exactly what I did. Being pleased with the result sent it off in early February to Short-Story.me for their Flash thread and forgot all about it till this morning when my inbox alerted me to the fact that they published it!
Please read it on the site and vote. Tx
So, all you budding writers out there, Have Patience and Never Give Up!
