I'm a Rock Star!

I just found out I am runner up in the Rock Star Games Upload 4 Short Fiction Competition. Rock Star Games makes Grand Theft Auto. Judges were Jonathon Nolan (wrote "Memento Mori," on which the movie Memento is based), JT Leroy (controversial writer figure), and Richard Nash (publisher of Soft Skull Press).

Winner got $3,000. The two runner ups got $0.

The story is based on an experience Rusty told me about--he may write his own version one day. Read it and see the competition details here.

Here are some other famous runner-ups:
