Slay Me with Laughter Writing Contest - Janet Reid

I had a lot of fun taking part in Janet Reid's Slay Me With Laughter Writing Contest over the weekend (contest entries were posted in the comments section of the above site if anyone wants to read them). The challenge was to write a 115 word story beginning with the words, "A monster-slaying governess, a vampire librarian, and a professorial zombie walk into a bar..."

I got a mention from Janet as she judged the contest (here are the results), and enjoyed coming up with a different place to set the story other than in an actual bar. Am off to read the winning entry again - it had a bit of a crack at Twilight and was too funny for words!!!
