Vote for My Story in the Sledgehammer Contest

For the second year in a row, I signed up for the Sledgehammer Writing Contest here in Portland, and I need you to vote for the Readers' Choice Award.

Sledgehammer starts off with a scavenger hunt, which accumulates four writing prompts, and—oh, did I mention there’s a 36-hour time limit?

This year my good friend, Chloe De Segonzac, and I formed Team Knipper, so we tackled this adventure together. Writing collaboratively is a bit different from going it alone, but despite a few rough patches, we managed to keep speaking to each other throughout the process and get the story finished with hours to spare.

To vote, read the sixteen competing stories at, and vote for your favorite three in the panel on the left side of the page.

Our story is titled "A Nice Package."

Thanks for your support.
