Awhile back my brother suggested that I let readers choose, from a sampling of my stories, one that I would develop into a full short story. (Though I’m not sure how long a “full short story” really is, but it’s probably a lot longer than 150 words.)
I have since chosen 10 of my stories for voting. They are not necessarily the very best stories, but ones I think have the most potential for a longer telling. I have included the titles and links to the stories below, as well as a short description of each. If you would like to vote please do so in the comments. You may vote for up to 3; please put them in order of highest preference. Thanks, and happy reading!

Day 9: Collectible - A girl named Wren who collects jars makes a surprising discovery.
Day 30: Curiosity – Jobo’s Magic Store, a shop that is always closed, is mysteriously open for business.
Day 46: Careers of the Future – In the future, suitable candidates may live underground and rate advertisements.
