Hi, everyone. I'm really proud of winning a contest for the first time -- The Iron Writer Challenge #17. The name of my story is "Lava Rock," a flash-fiction piece that could be no longer than 500 words and had to incorporate the following four elements: almonds, a grizzly bear, a root canal, and a town hall. This is what I came up with. Enjoy. And check out The Iron Writer site to participate in a future challenge yourself!
