About a month ago, I got an email from two gents asking me to participate in a special project. The idea was that several bloggers -- some who are published writers, some not yet -- would take the same story idea and spin it into a short story of their own. The common idea? The protagonist is driving along, something hidden in the trunk. He (or she) is pulled over...and the rest is up to the writer.
I'll be linking to the other participants' short stories a little later today in the post directly below this one. So where's mine, you ask?
Right here. It's called "Rulebreaker" and it wasn't the story I'd originally intended to write for this project -- I'd had in mind something a little more leisurely, a little more literary. Instead I produce something a little more off-kilter, but that's how it goes sometimes.
Enjoy, and now I'll spend the rest of my time reading everybody else's stories. Hope you will as well.
