Madie Schultz wanted to write something a little different this fall.

“I felt like most of my stories I’d written the past were happy,” Schultz said, explain why her short story featured so many bad things happening to the main character. “This is what I wanted to do.”

Schultz’s main character is dumped by her boyfriend – so he can date her best friend – then the girl experiences a series of depressing and damaging events that end with the girl in the hospital.
