Mysti Parker hosted another flash fiction contest for the month of May. Typically, I submitted my entry 10 minutes before the deadline 😀 Efforts to procrastinate less unsuccessful. I had perhaps 5 different ideas for this flash fic which had to start with the words “The phone rang…” My ideas ranged from horror to post-apocalyptic to contemporary. In the end, I went with a story that kept the idea of the phone and communication central to it and not just a story device.
I suck at story titles but went with Long Distance.
