Lick Skillet

I imagine many of my blog followers are probably rolling their eyes at some of my musings so I thought I would do something a little different this week.  I'm posting a short story called Lick Skillet today and a second entitled Hannah's Plea on Friday.  I wrote these for a contest -- which I didn't win -- but thought you might enjoy them.  Gal Friday (GF)  thinks they're good and she's my harshest critic so I feel safe in subjecting my self to the slings and arrows of any readers.  As per the requirements, the story length was limited to 1,200 words and had to have a coastal theme.  My novels are 90,000 to 105,000 words long so you can imagine how difficult it was for me to tell a good story in only 1,200 well-chosen words.  Hell, it's hard for me to quip a passable joke in so few words.  If you move your mouse over to the page listings on the top left under "My Profile," you can click on "Lick Skillet" to read the story.
