I’m a huge fan of Chuck Wendig’s blog TERRIBLEMINDS.  And I’m using this space to post my submissions to his Flash Fiction Challenges.  Recently, the challenge was to create the first line of a story – 15 words.  No more.  That’s when I went from lurker to real live penmonkey.  Here’s what I submitted.

“I’ve been posing as human for so long, you’d think I’d know how to kiss.”

The next week’s challenge is to select one of the opening lines (not your own) and write a story under it.  I was crazy excited to have someone select my line for their story.  So that pushed me into the deep end of the pool.  I selected a line and gave it a 1000- word effort.
