What is the favorite story of your life?
Can you submit it in less than 500 words?
Here are a few of mine.
April 4, 1968 when MLK was shot and we were hustled home from our baseball game because of riots throughout the nation.
How about the time when I met someone on the beach and married her in less than three weeks?
Or there was the time when I vacationed in Miami Beach for the very first time and became best friends with the best basketball player in America.
Or the time I ran off to a week at Club Med and forgot to pack my underwear.
Perhaps I can write about the time I ratted on a classmate and accused him or bending the silverware in the cafeteria, only to have the teacher I confided in, break my confidence and rat me out instead.
Maybe I will write all those stories.
And include some of the best ones I receive.
And we will share a unique formula to profit from the sale of our combined work.
How does that all sound to you?
