BlogFestivus 2012 :: Day 1 of 9 – The Note

BlogFestivus 2012: a seasonal short story writing challenge.

Once again, I am taking part in Blogdramedy‘s writing challenge. Her requirements were minimal, which meant it was a good fit for me. First, we are required to write nine stories for the next nine days (Dec. 11th – Dec. 19th). Second, we were only required to come up with 243 words per story. Third and final, we must write about the nine reindeer who are founding members of the Reindeer of the Icelandic Antler Club, which includes Rudolph.

I hope you enjoy my first installment, and may you return for the eight remaining installments to come.
