Haunted Cat

Remember that blog post I wrote last week about the NPR fiction contest? You had to write a short story of no more than 600 words that began with “Some people swore that the house was haunted” and end with “Nothing was ever the same again after that”.

Well, I managed to have some free time over the weekend so I gave it a shot. It was hard to get it short enough (my first version was 1108 words long) but I juuuust managed to do it (the final version is 596 words). I call it, Haunted Cat. Check it out!

As a side note, this is one of the nice benefits of having your own blog. If you enter a contest like this, no one really notices unless you win. But if you’ve got your own blog, then at least your blog readers are going to see the post about it. Of course, maybe none of you are actually going to read my story. But at least there’s a chance. =)
