So, I started writing a story for a competition which I ended up missing the deadline for by a mile (thank you, Matt), but I’ve kept working on it because I really liked the concept and I found a few publications that I think (read: hope) would be the right audience. Unfortunately, in the weeks since the deadline passed, my brain has now had enough time to get…creative. So what started as a short fairytale retelling with a smidgin of horror in it now has invisible man-eating monsters in the woods, soul stealing banquets, an abundance of poisonings, and a political coup in the works.
THIS IS NOT HOW WE SHORT STORY, BRAIN!
(but it’s cool-)
I DON’T CARE! AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!
It’s time for Rory.
