This week we commemorate our fallen war heroes with a request to remember the dead from Isolde Ryan, titled “Lest We Forget”. Next is chapter three of our current story chain, “Fresh and Forgotten”, written by Chantelle Carignan-Fieldhouse. It’s a cliffhanger now, with the perfect ending coming next week…stay tuned. Then, a poignant war poem that brought a tear to my eye, titled “God is Calling (Ode To Ukraine)”, written by Angie Rose-Carnegie. Finally, the third-place winner in the Halloween spooky stories competition, titled “The Real Haunted House – An Interview” by Michelle Dinnick.
Thank you to all the contributors and keep those stories coming, and if you have comments for the authors, please send them to me. Speaking of stories, don’t forget the pumpkin and squash story writing competition. The recipe book is well worth winning. Let me have your stories or poems by November 18th. for a chance to be published on Short’s Shorts website, writingblog.ca
As I’m sure you’ve all noticed, the stores are officially full of Christmas cheer, so I guess that now is the time to think about those Christmas stories. So, dust off the old ones or get busy with new ideas. The Christmas story writing competition kicks off next week. Details to follow.
