Writing contest

I want to thank everyone for all of their support, prayers, and good thoughts for my son, me, and the family. We still don't know too much and there are a lot more trips scheduled in the next month. But you'll never know how good it made me feel to read all of the comments of love and support. Thanks so much. You guys are the BEST! :)

TRI Studio LLC invites you to submit your flash fiction story to their current writing contest, "Old Mold New Milieu," in The Fiction Flyer, their free ezine for writers. There are modest cash prizes, but you likely will survive without the ten dollars. More interesting, winning stories will be published in The Fiction Flyer, which has a subscriber list of about 1,000 at present. Okay, you can survive without the exposure, too, but wouldn't it be nice? And your story only needs to be 1,000 words or less. You can write that much before lunch! AND you get to showcase a couple characters in your own books or stories, which of course begs readers to investigate further, which is why links to winners' books and stories will be included. Details for the contest are here:

They have some interesting judges, too. Kevin Collier, who as you know is a well-known and mutli-published author and artist of youth fiction, and his wife, Kristen Collier, a talented author of critically acclaimed Christian literature, and Carolyn Howard-Johnson, promotional guru and multi-award winning author of numerous novels, books of poetry, and the best-selling how-to Frugal Book series on book promotion.

They will also give you a subscription to The Fiction Flyer, which is a quarterly ezine packed with up-to-date articles, information, and stories by and for writers. And yes, they love growing their subscription list!

Hop on over and check it out!


  1. Thanks for the heads up. I shall definitely try this. :D

  2. I'd love to try it Danyelle, but I'm putting the finishing touches on my MG novel and I need all my attention on that. :)

  3. Since I couldn't write something this short to save my life, this will be more of a distraction for me. :o) No expectations, this will be nice for a change. :D

  4. I see what you mean. Hmm, then, I think I'll try it too. I normally couldn't write something like this. I want to know if I can. :)

  5. One little step at a time (talking about your son). I know you'll find the answers soon and they will be good ones :)

    I'm lousy at short stories...but love to read other people's talent.

  6. Tess, The hardest part is not knowing. I want to know what is wrong with him, to help him get better.

    I write picture books so I understand about drawing description with as little words as possible. I thought of Davin when I heard of this contest.:)

  7. This is my goal for the long weekend. Thanks so much.

  8. Many institutions limit access to their online information. Making this information available will be an asset to all.


Leave me a note! :)
