On word limits and sticking it to the man

I came across this via The parasite guy‘s blog this morning.

You know how writing contests (and blog fiction challenges for that matter) always have word limits?  Well, Scott Bartlett did not like the six-hundred-word limit of a contest he entered, so he wrote a story making fun of the word limit…and won!

Actually the story can work as a pretty good template for what should be in a short story if you really think about it.

And in case you missed my attempt at romantic comedy in yesterday’s Song Title Challenge, go read Rollin’ With My Homies and tell me what you think.

Have a good one.
