Thing the second. Shit. I forgot thing the second. I legitimately forgot thing the second. It's not good. I'm starting the day this way, this doesn't bode well for my shift at work.
Thing the third. When I last talked to you about the Iron Writer, I asked that you go and vote for a story. Many of you did, and I am still eternally grateful to you all for that. I lost that challenge, but unbeknownst to me, the winner of that challenge has been writing since before I was born, and has a ridiculous following. Much respect, the man is talented. I lost that round, but because of all of you, I was still voted highly enough to be seeded into the quarterly tournament should anyone drop out unexpectedly. Someone did. So I was seeded into the Virginia Woolf division of the quarterly tournament.
For those of you just joining me, the Iron Writer is a weekly challenge that pits four writers against each other in a flash fiction competition. Each writer is given four elements that they need to weave into a cohesive story in under 500 words. This is tough.
Every quarter, all of the winners from the weekly challenges are invited to a tournament with ridiculous elements. Seriously, it gets tough. The opening round has the following elements:
An Electric Flying Bicycle
An Obscure Black and White TV Comedy/Drama
Tough, right?So. I want to ask you all a favor as Thing the Third. I want you to go over to (INSERT LINK HERE) and vote for your favorite story. I'm not saying vote for my story, that would be wrong. If my story is your favorite, then that is great. That said, if World of Wonders Episode Six is your favorite... that makes me happy, but please vote for whichever tickles your fancy. Anyway. Please vote. It would mean a lot to me if you did. Bless you, and bless your face.
