Electric Spec's Mini Slush Game

The editors over at Electric Spec Magazine are doing something very unique: they're encouraging writers to anonymously submit the first page (200 words) of a short story to their blog for editorial comment.

They're calling it the Mini Slush Game, and the rules for it are here. Blog readers will also have the chance to comment on the submissions. Writers can comment on their own entries as well, and break their anonymity if they wish.

The first entry has already been posted, and editors will encourage writers whose entries they are impressed with to submit the full story to the magazine.

Yours truly has submitted a first page. See if you can guess which one is mine.

Of course. You guys do great things at Electric Spec, and I appreciate the insight all of you editors give into the industry. I learn something new everytime I go to the mag.
