The Chico News & Review's Fiction 59 Contest
So, every year Chico's weekly Arts & Entertainment rag has a contest called "Fiction 59." The idea is to write a piece of fiction using EXACTLY 59 words (title not included).
This is the first time I've ever submitted anything for this contest. I didn't even get an honorable mention. Wah.
The following 3 entries are my submissions to this contest.
