We all know that family gatherings all too often provide a setting for some Epically Uncomfortable Moments: Grandma waxes on about your mom's teenage antics, your uncle turns nostalgic after too many sips of wine...Yes, a holiday dinner can definitely have its ups and downs. Mom's pumpkin pie (yes!), an endless sea of dirty dishes (no!).
And so...Thanksgiving is also the perfect time to launch our latest writing challenge!
Here's what to do: submit a 250-300 word story that takes place during a family holiday dinner. Have fun with this one. Use as many or as few characters as you want, and think hard about evoking setting, food, etc. There's tons of potential for food fights and dramatic revelations here, so get crazy...just like you would if your bro tried to take the last piece of pumpkin pie!
Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll post some of them right here at the end of the month! Happy early Thanksgiving!
