Liberty Hall flash challenge, 15 points!

I tried something new on Friday. I went to a site called Liberty Hall, a writer's website. They have a weekly Flash Challenge. You sign in and it shows you a trigger: a phrase, or a few words, to give you the idea for a story. Then a timer starts and you have 90 minutes to write a complete short story. I tried it out and I thought it went quite well. I didn't have time to go back over it, so it probably had some typos, but the story is decent enough. 1300 words total. I gave it a quick polish yesterday and sent it off, so that brings me up to 15 points! :)

13 points!

I hit 13 points, and of all days to hit it on, it happened on Halloween, which I didn't even plan. :)
This one's off to the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction (F&SF) in Hoboken, NJ.
