    Won 3rd Place in a Short Story Contest!

    Yesterday, I discovered my short story HELEN FINDS HER WAY TO AFTER has taken 3rd place in the Community of Simcoe County's Word by Word Short Story Contest!

    This is big beans for a story that did NOT make the original Top 5 Shortlist! I was, apparently, #6...until one of the top 5 was disqualified. I write about it on my blog today, because I am SO incredibly happy for HELEN! The 63 year-old woman who possessed me long enough to tell me about her Camino de Santiago story. I wrote the story in an hour, with Helen pushing me every step of the way!

    The distinction comes with a $100.00 prize. (-: I'm So incredibly happy for Helen, I can't even tell you.

    Nice! Congratulations.
    Write the change you want to see in the world!

    Writing exposition is like putting red pepper flakes on your pizza - the occasional burst adds depth and flavor, too much in a lump can burn the reader out.
