You are in a dimly-lit cavern that makes your nostrils flare with its musty smell. You take one of the torches that line the rocky walls and hold it closer to the wall on your right. There are three doors, and therefore three choices; “Blog,” “Books,” and “Flash Fiction.”
After deciphering the ancient writing, you determine that this is the lair of someone called “Holly Geely,” an ancient entity that once loved ba-dum-ching endings and jokes made in poor taste. The door marked “Blog” contains musings from its average life; the door marked “Books” contain information about its various attempts at print; and the door marked “Flash Fiction” promises to be an assortment of cringe-worthy stories in a wide variety of genres.
Which door will you choose?
