‘Why Should I Wear a Mask?’ is a 100-word short story. John refuses to wear a mask during the COVID-19 pandemic, but his decision is something he may live to regret.
The story was written for the Friday Flash Fiction’s Edinburgh Festival Competition. I didn’t win the competition, but my story was published on the website — all accepted entries are posted on the website. And it got a good comment, so I’m happy about that.
This story also joins ‘My Sweet Gift to You’, which is also published on the Friday Flash Fiction website.
You can read ‘Why Should I Wear a Mask?’ on the Friday Flash Fiction’s website.
You can also join my Facebook groups: Setting Self-Doubt on Fire Squad, which is for writers; and The Nicole J. Simms Squad, which is for readers who enjoy my stories and want a sneak peek into what I’m working on before anyone else.
Also, I’ve also created a Nicole J Simms YouTube channel. On my channel, I will be sharing videos of my performances, trips, writing group adventures and my stories.
