My journey through the world of writing and everything that lies in between…

Talking Sandals

I placed third in a writing contest.

The contest was held over at Natalie Whipple’s blog. She posted a Five Word challenge–you had to use the five words she chose in a story. And it had to be 333 words…or less.

The five words:

sociolinguistics
fustigate
defenestrate
katana
lenticular

Some of those I had no clue what they meant. Thank you, internet dictionary, for clarification 😛 Anyway, I wrote a story about the mythical bakezori–otherwise known as a straw sandal that comes to life. 

The Talking Sandal

That creepy little thing helped get me 3rd place in the contest 🙂 Head on over to Natalie’s blog and read my entry The Talking Sandal if you’re curious. Also read the other two–they are awesome in their own right!
