Those Shining Moments

How about something different this week in the way of submissions.

Think of this as a chance to strut your stuff.

Is there a paragraph, a scene, or a page of which you are especially proud? Maybe it just came together well or nails the character traits. Makes you shed a tear.

Send a submission for bragging rights.

Here is mine:

He shrugged when she turned. “It was twelve years ago. Time heals all wounds—well you know the saying. Anyway, they never found his body and he died there. End of story.”


Her hand tightened as he started to brush past her again. He looked down at her with veiled eyes. Then he broke free and strode to the house through the bushes on the edge of the property.

“You’re not the only one broken.” His words were very low, nearly inaudible.


Send a scene or page to unicornbellsubmissions@gmail.com and I’ll post it.

This is your chance to shine.

Great idea Carol! And I love your snippet. Especially the last line, "You're not the only one broken." That sums up so much of life doesn't it?
