It doesn't take much to distract me. I picked up the latest issue of Writer's Digest and noticed their latest challenge:
Write a short story of 750 words or fewer based on this issue's prompt: a scene in which a woman, under no threat of bodily harm, is forced to empty her purse.
So... for the past two hours I've been asking myself why would a woman empty her purse? Why, why, why? My mind is blank, but if you can come up with a good story on why a woman would empty her purse, then email it to YourStoryContest@fwpubs.com
All entries must be in the text of the email - ABSOLUTELY NO ATTACHMENTS.
Oh, yeah, the deadline is March 10th.
You don't have long. :)
