I Submitted a Short Story

Hey there. I haven't logged on to Associated Content in awhile, so I decided to check it out and see if there are any topics that would interest me to write about. Right there, on the front page, I see the task to write a short story. A flash-fiction, actually. Hmmm... Interesting, so I went ahead and checked it out and AC provided 3 sentences for you to start your story with. The sentences seem a little dark, implying some kind of bad news of sorts. I went with, "She still couldn't shake the previous night's dream." and ran with the "horror" thing but with a twist at the end. Check it out. I called it, "The Devil's Pawn". Click the link below and let me know what you think of it. Thanks!

The Devil's Pawn


  1. Hey there Gerri,

    It mainly pays by page views. For every 1,000 page views, you get $1.50. There are also paid articles where if you write them, they'll pay an upfront fee for the article. So far, I haven't made any big money, but I haven't really tried so I figured that if I really set out to promote some of the articles that I have written, I would be able to bring in a nice monthly income from AC.
