Character Flaw

This is for Maddie's "reluctant life" assignment. I discarded my first two ideas of Johnny Cochrane suing God for Adam's heirs and Pinochio wanting to be changed back because Gepetto abused him. That left this silly thing...

It Could Happen to You

Once again, I imposed a 500 word limit on myself. My heros are those who make 500 word assignments. I wonder. Is the governing board that sets standards for fairies elected or appointed?

Flip Side

Okay, this thing turned out to be almost 1500 words. It may be that a paradox may be tough to do in 500. I wrote a handful of Harry Hall stories back in the 90's, but this is the first new one in 15 years.

Truth is Overrated

Here's my entry for Linda's "liar" assignment. It's a little long, but I don't think I should cut it down any. If it's painful, it's Linda's fault.

Here is my illness side-effects story. For the first time in several contests, I really felt the squeeze of the word limit on this one. I would have liked to use a few more to describe the main character here to help create the word images.
