My first memory of storytelling was my father reading to me from 'The Hobbit' when I was a child, showing me the pictures and describing Bilbo's adventures in his own wonderful words. As I grew up he would continue to tell me stories, some were based on local myths and legends, others on classic literature such as Poe, and a few were entirely of his own creation. 

More than anything I owe my love for telling stories to my father, and the sense of wonder about the world which he encouraged me to explore. My name is Michael and it means a great deal to me that you have taken some time to read one or two of the stories I have written, born out of that imagination forged all those years ago.

I liked "Bedtime" a lot after reading it on creepypasta.com, but where can I find it on the 2012 Watty Award's page?

Hey, I was wondering if you were aware that exact words from your work 'Bedtime' and the basic plot itself has been made into an RPG horror game called 'It Moves'? Just making sure no copyright infringement has been committed.
