Well, I collected some opinions about my story … I had my mom read it and I shared it at my writers’ group … and, since the opinions were positive, I’m here to say that it’s officially a finished product! (Until I bring it out again in May for my writing class assignment, when it won’t be able to stop me from tweaking it.) This little victory energizes me for the rest of my writing.
Working title: “Field of Blue”
Synopsis: The Crossmans have a treasured yearly tradition to take family photos in a very special bluebonnet field. But what will happen when, this year, life contrives to prevent it?
Note: For those of you who don’t live in Texas, it’s a tradition to take photos of loved ones -- especially kids -- in fields full of the state wildflower, bluebonnets. I personally think bluebonnets make one of the most beautiful backdrops imaginable. And it's almost time for them to start coming out!
