Below you will find the results of my having challenged myself for a number of days to write a short story with a beginning and middle and an end inside of 30 minutes. Here is what I came up with. I hope you like it.
“This is the coat your grandfather died in. It is haunted by his spirit. No-one dares wear it.”
“Yeah, but that has nothing to do with it being haunted. It’s still all covered in broken glass and mud and blood and excrement from when the the school bus hit him.”
“Yeah? Well, it’s haunted, too.”
