Better Than Nothing

A writer’s curse is his inability to be a fair judge of his own work. Either that, or my just-submitted story for the Halloween Contest of my Codex Writers Group really sucks as badly as I fear. To quote one of the characters: “Lame, lame, lame, lame, lame.”

But at least I worked in all of the elements of the ‘seed’ (story catalyst) fellow Codexian David Gill sent me:

  • A human femur, a birthday cake, a lunch box, an unopened letter, a broken light bulb, a cat, and these two lines of dialogue:
    “It itches”
    “For God sake, don’t scratch.”

Oddly enough, the birthday cake was the most difficult to work into the story…
