A week ago, I entered a short story contest hosted by @thewritepractice. Judging is ongoing, but all of the stories in the contest are live at their website. The theme was creatives and there was a 1500 word max. If you’d like to read my entry, it’s posted at my Word Press blog. The title is “The Lost Scribe”. Link to my blog is in my profile. Summary: Females are relegated to pictographs as a form of communication. Males are taught the ancient language and also to read and write. An orphaned young girl Leonor learns the ancient language just to spite Ernesto, the spoiled son of the wealthiest family in the village. Risking execution for her actions, Leonor learns a few words and can write and read them. In doing so, she discovers some secrets that have been kept by the male scribes of her society.
(Since this is a cross post from IG, the story is already here!)
