Micro Fiction Contest: You Shouldn’t Have Waited This Long

“You should not have actually waited this long … moron”

The dental expert stated, “OK, however did you ever choose a winner for your previous contest, Take Your Accordion and Buzz Off?”.

One of my personal 2020 goals was to check out a dental professional. Its been … a while. A long while. Long enough that the dental expert said the other day, into my mouth, “You shouldnt have actually waited this long.”.

Weve taken an extreme inward appearance at our composing the previous few weeks on this blog site. We talked about the ways our internal critics hinder us; we shared the finest passage weve written (up until now) in 2020; and recently we had a splendidly frank conversation about whether were hitting our 2020 reading & & composing goals.

Discussion questions: Using fifty words or less, compose a narrative or scene that consists of the line “You shouldnt have actually waited this long.” Compose or previous your story (or stories– get in as often times as you wish!) into the remarks

” Well, no …” I said. “But Ill consist of that details in this weeks email message. If you dont currently subscribe, Doctor, you might do so on the ideal sidebar, under Join Our Mailing List. And yes, there really is a free present!”.

.

” Ummm, certainly,” I replied. “But theres been this virus? You just gave me the keyphrase for my next Micro Fiction Contest.”.

What Is This Contest and How Do I Enter?

In fifty (50) words or less (consisting of the six built into the line itself), compose a story or scene– and even a minute from your own life; these dont need to be fiction– that consists of the line ” You shouldnt have actually waited this long.”.

Compose or paste your story/stories in the remarks area listed below.

Send your entries by the end of Sunday, July 19. Ill reveal the winner in the remarks and in the following weekends email message (which, if you do not already receive, you can sign up for in the right sidebar).

Go into as lot of times as you wish.

My preferred story (stories?) will earn its author his/her choice of book from the WBN library

.

Youll Choose a Winner Based on What, Exactly?

And Ill take into consideration the number of thumbs-up each story gets. If you truly delight in somebody elses piece, be a sport and provide it an upvote.

The usual metrics: design, concision (certainly), humor. Whimsy (mine).

Good luck!
