YA Lit Mag hosts a monthly contest: we provide a tantalizing picture, and you write up the story to tell us what’s happening!
Congratulations to our April/May winner Jack Brass! Check out his story after the image..
- “I can’t believe I fumbled”, thought Frank, as the ball dropped from his hands. A couple of teenagers standing on the sidelines watching the practice chuckled at him. Frank wasn’t happy. He tossed the ball back to the Quarterback and team captain, Josh. “Hey, it’s no problem Frank” said Josh. “Just keep your mind in the game. Once you start caring about what those bozos on the sidelines think, you won’t have any mind left to make the catch.”
Josh was the school’s biggest culprit of spewing advice. Some of the less than average athletes thought he did this to put them down, and some of the better athletes appreciated it because they thought it was helpful. The cute girls thought it made him more caring, but Frank never thought much about Josh’s advice. He just didn’t like being singled out, which Josh did often.
