This was my entry for a flash fiction (300 word) writing contest (I got second place!). The theme was romance. Perhaps a little tame compared to most love stories, I chose to stick with a funny young adult voice. Choose the link below. And enjoy!
I believe in dreams.
I believe in Santa Claus.
I believe in vampires and zombies.
I believe in second chances, and third, and fourth . . .
I believe in love at first sight.
I believe God is in control.
I believe in fairies.
I believe we have to fail a few times in life.
I believe in heaven. And hell.
I believe things always work out for the best, even if we don’t see it.
I believe we were created to follow our heart, our purpose.
I believe in Oz.
I believe diets were created by evil spirits.
I believe in balance.
I believe in a good night’s sleep.
I believe Friends was the best show of all time.
I believe chocolate does help my mood.
I believe there’s gold at the end of a rainbow.
I believe someone else in this world is writing 20 things they believe in at this very moment.
I believe there’s always enough to share.
What about you readers?
Because of my peculiar Sinosauropteryx fossil discovery, I spent the day negotiating with the Smithsonian Institute instead of writing. I’ll let you know about the press release sometime in the near to distant future.
In order to dignify my claim that you are only as old as you feel, I spent the entire day attending a college football tailgate and sneaking Strawberry Schnapps into my lemonade; consequently, I did not write.
*Purely fictional, unfortunately
Because #2 was so bad, I’ll post #3 . . .
Initiating from some visceral level in my body is the confidence that I will win the Powerball tonight and be able to send myself to writing school where I can really focus. Therefore, I did not write today.
I didn’t write a damn word today because the overpaid-amateur hypnotist who put me in a trance forgot to snap his fingers, so instead I spent the day believing I was the hottest pop star in the country and asking people if they wanted my autograph.
What’s your excuse?
