This is a 24 hour contest. I like these because it levels the playing field a little bit.
I really enjoyed writing the story I entered. So, it was hard to not see my name in the winners circle, or even an honorable mention. I didn't even get a door prize for crying out loud! It's tough not to win. Especially when you know your story is well crafted. The only thing I can think of is that it maybe was not as original as some of the winners, and perhaps there just wasn't enough POW. It's a nice story of a father and daughter, but the 'so what' factor may be a little light.
Regargless, I hope you enjoy the story below. Tell me what you think. Then check out the winners.
