Cat-Eyed Moon

Cat-Eyed Moon
October 25, 2012 2 Comments Writing Stephanie Ayers

Each month, on the night of the cat-eyed moon, you can hear the woodwinds play. If you happen to live in a cabin across from the hills, you might even see them dancing. Beware being caught watching, though, or they will forever haunt your soul.


  For those that are uninitiated, the 55 Word Challenge is a contest to write a story in 55 words or less. The challenge begins at noon Eastern time every Wednesday and ends at noon Thursday. The story is based on one of three photo prompts and can be written in any genre you choose. I used all 3 and I come in with 45 words.

What do you think? Did I write you a story? Please feel free to share your thoughts in a comment. I always love hearing from you!

Also, if you are new here, you should know that I am one of many authors competing to become America’s Next Author. Like American Idol, there is a new nominee every week, secured in place by your votes, social media shares, ratings, and reviews. Please take a moment (you don’t even need to create an account) and stop by my author page and VOTE, then use the social media icons (inLinked, Twitter, and FB likes) underneath to spread the word. I’d really appreciate it if you left a review, too. While you are there, take a moment to stop by my friends’ Lance, Cameron, and Jester Queen pages as well and vote. Thanks!

Thanks for stopping in!
