I made Idol top ten! Woo Hoo

I’m totally in awe that my name appeared as one of the top finalists. See lists of finalists here. This will also link you to each winning entry for your reading pleasure.

Each week Jenna announces a theme. This week is Crossroads. THE THEME:


Let us meet someone at a crossroad in his/her life, about to make a major decision. Show us the decision. Length: 2500 words or less. Can take any form (short fiction/nonfiction/poetry/screenplay/etc.).
Due: Sunday, April 10th at 11:59 p.m. EST. If all entries are in before then, voting will commence as soon as the last entry is in. Otherwise, voting commences on Monday, April 11th (I'll announce when it's time to vote).
Previously unpublished work only, please. It's OK to have the work critiqued (by a writing group, friendly editor, etc.) before you submit it.
Good luck! May the muse be with you!

Great theme! Crossroads have been many in my life. Now, how do I choose which one to write.

Make me smile. Leave a comment...
