An update on my writing: I am submitting a short story called Silence to Bethesda Magazine for their annual literary festival. This is a story I wrote in senior year of high school for a fictional literature class. It's about a 68 year old man who is thinking back on the regrets of his life, the biggest one being how stubborn he was with his adopted son. It's a story of a family and the lies that drive them apart. Submission deadline is February, and if I win, the story will appear in their magazine in April.
Shout out to Wendy E. for telling me about the contest! Thanks, Wend!
