I did it! I entered my most challenging writing contest yet! This one was a real DOOZY!!
Vivian Kirkfield's 50 Precious Words Contest challenges the writer to create a story using 50 words or less! I was afraid to enter, very afraid. But, a little cheerleading from my critique partners went a long way... and suddenly I was *inspired!*
I wrote one. It wasn't good enough.
Then I wrote another and another.
Eventually, I had five options and still felt very unsure of myself.
I finally settled on FOODIE FAIRE.
This piece was inspired by my pre-pandemic travels. I love-love-loved going to unique food markets and faires around the world! While writing this piece, I remembered the sights, sounds and smells of one market in particular: Mercat De La Boqueria in Barcelona. It had stall after stall of fruits, meats and treats! And there were little bars peppered throughout the market where visitors could sit down for a meal.
