I don’t like umbrellas. Don’t ask me why. Although it might have something to do with how they catch the wind, which I don’t much care for either.
My submission to the Scare Us! horror story challenge on LitReactor is one of the three winners of that competition: full results here. Our prize is feedback on our stories from none other than Chuck Palahniuk. Speaking for myself, this is a mind-blowing reward.
Chuck is one of my favourite authors, so this was a terrific surprise for me. I’d like to thank him for his feedback and most of all his time. Also, I should thank the LitReactor staff and users, as well as anyone else that read my submission and/or gave feedback of their own. Last but certainly not least, I’d like to thank Suzy Vitello. She’s a gifted editor and writer, and most importantly she’s damn inspirational.
The story is “We Called It God,” and you can read it here – log in with Facebook or register with LitReactor to download the Word document.
