This was entered into a short story competition, and while it didn’t win, I still had lots of fun writing it so I wanted to share! The story had to involve someone randomly getting $20,000. I woke up with a start, opening my eyes and expecting to see a great big burning ball of fire … Continue reading Doomsday

Sara and James stopped as they came to a wide bridge that passed over the Jumatan River. It wasn’t a spoken decision, but they both knew what was waiting for them under the bridge. James took his sister’s hand. “We might as well get it over with,” he said, trying to be the brave one. … Continue reading Writeober Day 30: Tedious
