Saw a post for the Toronto Star's short story contest. Thought I might see what I could do. My problem is keeping it to 2500 words! My best short story right now is just shy of 5000, and I'm not sure I could hack it in half. The other two I have are both just over 3000. I think I'll take another stab at another story and see what count it comes in at. I love that short stories tend to write themselves. Now to find an editor with less emotional ties than myself to the work!
