Happy October! I have had an incredibly creative past 4-5 months and even wrote an entire body of new work. Some of my newer stories have won PITCH contests, some of my stories have WITCHES in them... and I'm really hoping to reach another major milestone in my career as a children's author soon. STAY TUNED for lots of exciting news on the way... in the meantime...
This is my first year participating in Kaitlyn Sanchez’s Fall Writing Frenzy. (You can read all about the contest here.) The challenge is to write a 200-word or less Fall-themed #kidlit story based on one of the photographs chosen for the contest.
Right around when Kaitlyn announced the contest, I lost someone very close to me. My children and I find joy in talking to cardinals whenever we feel sad, and the feeling of loss paired with the dreary woods photo, inspired my entry, THE CARDINAL'S GIFT, complete at 188 words, in hopes of spreading JOY.
Thank you, @KaitlynLeann17 for organizing the contest as well as to the many generous prize donors:
