All Stories are True, but This One Really Happened (Part One)

The Moon over GuelphChuck Wendig’s blog post writing prompt this past week was to write a story from your life in under a kiloword. I’ve told this story to lots of people over the years, but had never taken the time to write it down, so the prompt, plus the fact that Halloween is right around the corner, meant I wasn’t about to pass up the opportunity.

I humbly present a tale of my youth: A Taste of His Own

There are plenty more stories of my idiot youth, so I plan to add to this series from time to time.


My thanks to Pat Rothfuss for inspiring the title of this post.
