I just came across a long lost story! I never knew this micro-story I wrote won a prize. I was looking for the judge’s name from a previous story of mine that won a prize (“The Understanding”), when I stumbled across another flash piece I’d obviously sent them that was chosen top story that week […]
“Do You Know the Bunny Hop?” Origins I wrote “Do You Know the Bunny Hop?” for a competition in which it placed but was not published.
