It is my pleasure to present to you the second of two Honorable Mention winners from the March 2018 Word Weaver Writing Contest, “Autistic Girl and the Killer Lawn Gnome” by Dabney Farmer.
And by now you know me well enough that a title like that probably means some humor awaits inside the story, which I love, so it’s an easy quick top ranking.
That kind of title reminds people of Attack Of the Killer Tomatoes or Sharknado – stuff that is largely regarded as, well, as sucky. Really bad. To me, it can indicate there’s a strong possibility the story is slapdash thrown together, sloppy, and was not taken seriously by its creator – and thereby misses the mark and should not be taken seriously by the reader. It’s gonna be really good or really bad – but usually really bad.
Obviously, that was not the case.
