I entered a short story competition that required me to write a 1000 word short story in 48 hours. The story needed to meet three things, a genre (A Ghost Story), a location (An Igloo) and an object (A Coffee Mug). It took me a while to find the right idea and to get it to work in a way I was happy with. But like the last time I entered something similar, I enjoyed the desire to find the story that sparked the right way for me. So, for the sake of creativity, here is 1 of the 24 rejected stories in a 100 word format..
On The End Of My Finger
“This is not what I expected when you said you had something to show me,” He says, as he looks over the purpose-built igloo that stands before him.
“You were hoping for something else?”
“Well, when most ladies say they have a little something to show me, it usually means something different.”
“Drink your coffee, before it gets cold you twit,” she says with a laugh, as she shoves a mug of coffee in his face.
“I-I-I,” he stammers.
“W-W-What is it?” she says with a smile.
He raises is arm and points a twitching finger towards a ghostly figure.
