In One Too Many Blows To The Head, Detective Dean Fokoli is trying to start a new life as an honest man. It’s tough for him to do. Although he wants to forget the past, others can’t.
I love a flawed character. I love the “realness” of it. Rather than making me lose interest, flawed characters who try to improve endear themselves to me.
So here’s the deal: send me a story – 500 words or less – about a character looking for redemption, seeking a second chance, trying to start over – you get the idea.
- 500 words or less (I already said that but I’m saying it again)
- Prose should be lighthearted and humorous. It’s the holiday season and I don’t want to get all suicidal.
- Material needs to be original (That goes without saying, of course.)
- Deadline is December 15.
- Send story to email@example.com
