Short Story Month 2012, Day 5. Why short story month?

There hasn't been time to do much blog posting today, so instead I'll send you to Emerging Writers Network on why we're celebrating short story month. I think all too often the short story is seen as a means to some other, more important, and definitely more lucrative end. But just as a haiku is not a step on the way to an epic poem, the short story is not just writer's training for working up to a novel. It is complete in itself.

Here's the prompt.

The story is about a scuba diver who is in debt to an immoral college professor. It starts in a gun shop in a small city. The crux of the story involves a birthday celebration.
