Ten years ago DostxBook suggested we give each other Christmas presents, the present being a short story. So The Holiday Story Exchange started and ran for about five years.
The original members of the HSE group were:
Dostxbook (Stephen); mcedave (David); donroger (Don); Britanee (who later changed her name to Stargirl); Hypnic Jerk (David);
Capitalist_Pig (Abellona); TraciG (Tracy); DebE (Deborah); kingac (John); Camper (Dan);
JohnOBX (John); Oldtimer (Dorothy – me); Pat Pechon (Patricia); Wildstrawberries (Heather); and Gooblink (Cindy).
Stephen (Dostxbook) and Cindy Gooblink did all the hard work and set up a special mailbox for the Exchange.
I wondered whether any of the writers who contributed to the HSE took their stories any further. Did any of you submit your stories to a magazine? I sent mine to an online competition. It was shortlisted, but didn’t win.
