I am currently working on my writing career, and as part of that, I'm re-writing a lot of my old works to bring them up to my own professional standard. The text here is the newer version of a story I wrote, with details below. This version is expanded a little to give some more information, and to make it clearer who the story-teller is, without just giving it away. Enjoy!
had too many entries for the contest, so she chose her top few favourites to give the prize to instead of narrowing it down to just one, and this story was one of the favourites!
My entry into
's Random Writing Contest! The randomness told me to write a piece on the theme of Justice, containing the idea of a Purpose, and that had a Positive tone.
Part of the judging is related to how much we challenged ourselves. For me, the act of being positive was a challenge on its own! Most of my stories end in tragedy, despair, or some other such unhappy thing, as I get pretty sick of happy endings in movie and books and things. The best I can usually accomplish is to have something good come of the tragedy, or to have the character grow/escape from it, and I think I managed one of those two things, but I won't say which, if you haven't read it yet!
As always, comments/critiques are very welcomed and enjoyed, as well as favouriting
