There are some amazing short stories in What If? but I think this super short story just might be my favorite. I couldn’t help but share.
“Running with Joshua Trees” by Molly Lanzarotta
This is a story I wrote in October 2012 for a short story (500 words) contest for EveryWritersResource.com (you can also see it here).
Out of hundreds of entries, my story received second place.
I have taken this story down because I am currently revising it and submitting it for “real” publication. Thanks for your understanding.
This is a short ghost story that I entered and won in a ghost story contest in October of 2008. It was published in GhostsAndStories.com’s online magazine, Phantasm. It’s a horror story, but it’s what I like to call, “bubblegum horror.”
