Nothing Was Ever The Same Again After That.

NPR is back with the 5th edition of "Three Minute Fiction." Writers are invited to submit a story which is limited to 600 words.
The 1st line of every entry must be "Some people swore that the house was haunted." The last sentence must be "Nothing was ever the same again after that." Those 16 words are part of the 600 word maximum.
The deadline for submission is midnight (U.S. ET) on Sept 26th.
The judge is Michael Cunningham, who won a Pulitzer for fiction. At the early levels, however, there is a committee of judges.
There is no expectation nor desire (perhaps) that an entry necessarily involve ghosts. Or at least not the kinds of ghosts which inhabit haunted houses. There can be many kinds of ghosts and many kinds of houses.
I will be entering for my 3rd year.

Are there other people on A2K who might be interested in playing?

Sounds like fun - I'll toy with it.

My set up of this was 150 words, which is 25% of the 600 word max. Not a lot of room for plot or character development. That is not at all my style.
