New Short Story - The Whistling Swing

Dear all,

#Wednesday #HumpDay #GoodNews

Halloween is here... so is my new Short Story 😁.

After 4 years, I’ve finally written my first horror story... well, my attempt at a horror story titled “The Whistling Swing.”

Here’s a brief description:

“A neighbourhood is disturbed by a whistling sound at night and concerned residents are going missing. The nonchalance of the landlord towards finding a solution raises Jerry's suspicion and forces him to identify the source of the noise and put a stop to it. Jerry must battle with the strange happenings around him to get to the bottom of the case, but first, he needs to figure out what’s real and what’s unreal.”

The Whistling Swing was initially a Flash Fiction story of about 300 words, which I wrote in 2014.

Yay, I'm a Top 5 Finalist - Quramo Writers' Prize

Hey readers,

I didn't want to celebrate too much at first when I was listed as one of the Top 10 finalists, because I knew that a week later, the number was going to be slashed in two. I didn't want to celebrate too soon, but I should have, because getting to the Top 10 is an achievement on its own.

Thank you to the judges for giving my story an opportunity, and I look forward to the unveiling of the winner.
