Christmas Short Story Time

I teach creative writing twice a week to a group of talented teenagers. This year two of my students won the Royal Gazette Christmas short story contest. Yeah. So proud. (I didn’t pick them, someone else did.)  Last class one of my students told me that I was a real surprise to him because he always thought journalists were super skinny , wore Chanel No 5 and drove fancy cars. I got right down to the nitty gritty. “What do you mean I’m not skinny…”

So today when one of my other students came in to collect his prize he looked around the office. Out of ten light fixtures in the ceiling in the lobby there was only one that actually worked, making for a rather dim prize giving. He looked at me, shook his head and said: “Boy was X wrong about journalists.”
