Three Minute Fiction

I was listening to NPR the other day and heard a segment called Three-Minute Fiction. It’s a contest where they give you a first line and a last line and then you submit a short piece of fiction (600 words or less) that uses those lines. They pick a winner and read it on the air. The story has to start with:

“Some people swore that the house was haunted.”

And then it has to end with:

“Nothing was ever the same again after that.”

I sort of have an idea but no real ending, so I’m working on that. I’m not sure if I’ll actually submit or not, but I thought the idea was neat. The deadline is September 26 so check it out!
