Riding in the car down to Florida, I had a lot of thinking time. Unfortunately sometimes having too much thinking time can get me into trouble. I began to feel disappointed that my contests weren’t doing better; that there weren’t many submissions. I also felt that people weren’t quite grasping the Teen aspect of the theme. I kept thinking that maybe I should just stick with my writing and not continue to create ways to inspire other writers.
I almost quit. I almost decided that it wasn’t worth the disappointment of little interest, until I read this story. This writer stretched their abilities and was inspired by the prompts to write a story that touched the depth of feeling, creativity and imagination that I was hoping I could inspire in another writer.
