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?
