Best of 2013 - Nailpolish Stories

I was excited to find out that my story, China Doll, was selected as one of 2013's best stories over at Nailpolish Stories, where all the stories are exactly 25 words and all the titles are polish colors.

I'm hoping 2014 is a good year for writing and stories, too. So far, it's off to a great start!

Sometimes it worries me that I can take something innocent like a nail polish color and turn it into…that. But then I go eat chocolate and everything is okay. :)

That is awesome. Congratulations. And I love you story. So simple, but creepy when you start thinking about it.

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

Thank you! Those are some of my favorite kinds of stories to read and write - where it might be a little creepy on the surface, but even more creepy when you think about it. :)
