Here's the good news I told you about

Here’s the good news I told you about.

I participated in a flash fiction challenge for the Canadian emagazine, Open Book, and won! The rules stated that the story had to be 500 words or less, 3rd person limited, and funny. The winner would be published in the next month’s issue.

My flash fiction, Stroke, might feel a little risqué, but stick with it, and I hope it makes you smile.

You can go directly to Stroke here.

Or you can check out the emagazine, Open Book, here and scroll down to see the January Flash Fiction Challenge Winner.

I find writing comedy to be hard. It seems like it should be easy, but I don't think it is. I'm never quite sure if what I think is funny will tickle other people's funny bone or not. Do you have the same issue or is comedy easy for you?

Congrats, Wendy and I have to say, for someone who found comedy hard, you succeeded in making me giggle. I loved the story.

I like writing comedy. LOVE it. I'm not always sure if anyone else will laugh, but I mostly like to amuse myself anyway. :)
