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.

“I was talking to those girls. I told ‘em about when I jumped my mongoose off the rocks behind Tom’s house.”

“What’d they say?”

“They were wicked into it. One of ‘em is totally hot.”


“I do some wild stuff.”


“I’m unpredictable. Like Jimmy Valiant.”


“My cousins call me Wildstar.”


“You ever do any shit?”

“I rolled up a sheet of blotter acid and shoved it up my ass. I was in the hospital all summer.”



“My cousin has a wicked cool drum set.”
