Last night for the first time I submitted a story to a contest. I didn’t know about the contest until a few weeks ago, so I couldn’t find time to create something new, but since Writer’s Digest excludes personal blogs as a “published” source, I was able to submit a story I previously posted. Made it just under the wire–the contest closes tonight.
I chose Harold’s Sneeze as my story. I needed to shorten it to under 1500 words per the requirements, and then my wife did some major editing. Hopefully what I sent is good enough for a win.
So, here’s the revised version of Harold’s Sneeze (formatting used for submission removed).
