When Jodi announced this contest, it was in the comments section of this blog and she said:
“Hey Sam, (and anyone else who likes to write, even though Sam will beat you if he submits), there is a short story competition over at Portland Studios – www.portlandstudios.com – looks pretty fun and interesting.”
Though Jodi will be insufferable after being proven right, I am amazed and very happy to report that I did win the story contest. This is encouraging. I am honored to have been selected by people I have a lot of respect for. These guys make some amazing illustrations. I have been blown away by Justin Gerard’s work, and everyone there is so talented. So -it’s grand.
There’s a little story in my own experience writing the story that I may relate later, but for know, head over to Portland Studios blog and check out the story. Leave a comment if you would. “This is real dumb,” would be an option.
