a wild shot
So I heard about this short story contest with a three grand prize. Just heard about it a couple days ago, and as I've looked over some of my previous work, I've come to the realization that I should never EVER submit something right after I've written it. Fortunately, this contest doesn't appear to have any restrictions on previously published material, so I sent 'em "Spike. Resonance." Officially, it's 18 words below the minimum word count, but... screw it. It's the strongest piece I have, especially in terms of what it appears the judges want. So... wish me (lots of) luck.
