I've been in a writing depression lately, unable to muster much enthusiasm for my current story and practically empty of ideas for anything else. I didn't think I'd be able to come up with anything for the Mormon Lit Blitz contest sponsored by Mormon Artist, especially not a submission with fewer than 1000 words. But to-day I got thinking about things, and realized that I had an idea. I sat down and wrote it out -- it was easy, because it was a true story, or rather, two true stories that I was able to combine with one theme -- and suddenly, there it was. My submission. I sent it off before I could lose my nerve. I don't think I'll be one of the finalists. There will be six to twelve finalists, but I already know that they've received at least 28 submissions, and there are still more than two weeks to the deadline. But I tried, and that's what counts. There's still life in the old girl yet.
I've written fanfic under the name Zelofheda, and some original fic under my real name.
