My Rainbow Story, writing update



I'm halfway through my short story for the "Rainbow's End" anthology. Here is a rough draft of the blurb:

Apprenticed as a weaver to her mother, Tala yearns to follow in her footsteps and complete the Tapestry of History for their village's yearly Festival of Ancestors. Tala only sees the world in monochrome and struggles to discern the patterns on the loom. In desperation she consults a witch woman, who instructs her to follow the rainbow's end to find what she seeks. Tala journeys with a friend from her childhood and together they learn that life is not black and white at the rainbow's end.

And I'm slowly working through my edits for Messenger in the Mist, and boy is it taking a long time. Phew! Because the semester is over at the University, I have Fridays off for the next month, so I'm hoping to get a lot done.

Is anyone else going to write a story for this? If not, what are you writing for?

I still haven't decided if I'm writing something for this. Yours sounds really great though! I'm editing at the moment. Fun fun, not! :)

I know, editing is so boring and takes soooo long. I do a little every day, but I can't make myself spend all my writing time on that.

Good luck with your story, and have a great Christmas!

I'm considering writing a story for it. If I do, it'll concern Norse mythology and the rainbow bridge that is in it.

I would love to submit something for this anthology but haven't yet thought long enough about it to come up with a story idea.

Just received a rejection for Breaking Hope, the story I sent in for the All About Eve anthology so I need to find another place to submit it to.

Angie, have a great Christmas as well!

Cherie, Norse mythology sounds really cool.

Nicole, sorry to hear about your rejection. Keep sending it out because you never know!
