Recently, Frostburg State University’s Center for Creative Writing held a community writing contest which focused on short “Spooky Stories”.
It’s been a long while since I’ve written something creative, so I thought I would make an attempt at this contest without regard for the prize. So, I set out and wrote this story in about 2 hours.
My wonderful wife also wrote a very exciting and subtle story for this contest. I think, for me at least, the knowledge that we were both working toward the same goal excited me, and made each keystroke that much more meaningful.
So, this past week was the due date, and I submitted both of our stories for the contest. Hit the jump to read my story, and feel free to leave comments.
I recently had a conversation with a close friend about the topic of Intellectual Property, and in the course of the conversation, my ideas were thrown back at me, and I realized that I’ve been looking at the topic in the wrong light.
This event has been spinning through my mind since that day, and I’ve been working toward deciding where I stand with regards to piracy, giving things away for free, and being a creative person for a living. Though there are so many shades of grey in this type of debate, I’d like to share my thoughts in a semi-organized fashion.
