Winner of the 75 Word Conflict Contest
The challenge was to write a 75 word story and use the following words: fish, nose, tangle. Thank you to all who entered! There were so many good pieces, it was terribly hard to chose!
The winner is Jesse Bradley. Here are his stories! I’m publishing all 3 of them because they’re all that good.

You stand in the door, waiting for her to say something about your latest self-improvement, two fewer pounds. You watch her tangle a lock of her hair with her index finger. She finally looks up over her glasses, at you, crinkles her nose in that way you love, and then goes back to her book. You walk into the bathroom, open the bottle of diet pills, and vow to try and fish again next week.
