A trunk story is a story you wrote a while back but never sold.  Generally it carries the negative connotation of something that should be given up on.  So it amused me to no end when Infective Ink provided the prompt: "Locked in the trunk of a car".
Based on that prompt, I wrote a new (sorry, I didn't have any of those in my rejections folder) story speculating who and why someone would be locked in a trunk.

To my wonder and amusement, the story was accepted and became my first paying story this year.  If you've got a moment, check it out and feel free to leave a comment.

Remember my friends, no matter how deep your slump, you will eventually rise again, as long as you keep writing my friends!
