Home Office Decor: My New Magenta Wall

That’s right. I said, “Magenta.”

Or you can call it by it’s chosen name: “Can Can.”

I love it! Very energizing.

This former bedroom, which is now my office, was painted the color of the night sky.

Great for a bedroom. (ZZZ.) Not so great for this writer mama.

But now this…this does it for me!

I’m back! First up, The Whidbey Student Choice Fiction Contest

Enjoy the freedom of the short form and see your story in print.  The Whidbey Student Choice contest is looking for prose poetry, creative nonfiction, fiction, and children’s literature.  Anyone can enter–regardless of age, education, or country of origin.  The only catch is that the piece must be fewer than 1,000 words. Every month a new student judge takes the reins, and every month it’s a struggle to pick a single favorite out of the field.  The winner receives $50 and the winning piece is published on the Whidbey Student website.

If you’ve never entered before, do it now.  If you’ve sent us a little gem in the past and it didn’t win, send it again.
Once the judge finds something he/she loves, loves, loves, the mailbox on the student website closes, so don’t delay.  For full details and guidelines, go to

I spied these markets in Wooden Horse’s weekly e-zine.
