Against my better judgment, I entered myself in NYC Midnight’s 2017 Flash Fiction Competition and was tasked with producing a story of no more than 1000 words in just under 48 hours. If that wasn’t enough, the story had to adhere to these guidelines:
Setting: Waiting Room
Object In Story: Banana Split
Romance is by far my least strongest suit, so the struggle was real. Ultimately, though, I came up with a piece that I’m pretty proud of called ‘Extenuating Circumstances’, which you can read here. Enjoy!
