“Virtuous Dark”, my first short submission to the illustrious Writer’s of the Future Competition was short listed as a Semi-Finalist!  That’s top 20 or so of thousands of entries.

I’m tickled pink and am eager to keep pounding out the shorts to get into the top 3!  VD is a sort of “what if you realized you were the mother of Hitler?  How hard would you lie to yourself so you could still love your child?”  On a personal note, it was also an homage to my own mother’s struggles of losing her mind to the vagaries of the body.

As a perk, David Wolverton, the coordinating judge gave me feedback as a semi-finalist.  He said:  “I really loved your story.  There’s a sense of honesty to it that is hard to deny.”

One step forward.  Tomorrow, the world….
