Flash Fiction Finalist

My 990-word story, “Should Have Prayed For a Canoe,” made it into the top twelve in this year’s Mormon Lit Blitz!

I first heard the news shouted at me from a speeding car by my good friend Annaliese Lemmon, whose piece, “Disability, Death, or Other Circumstance,” is also a finalist. (Though it took my brain a few minutes to figure out why what she shouted sounded like “Congratulations,” rather than a more conventional “Hi.”)

You can read my piece, Annaliese’s, and the other ten as they are posted on the Mormon Lit Blitz page over the next two weeks. Mine goes live Friday, May 29th. Annaliese’s will be up on Monday, May 25th. After reading all the finalists, be sure to cast your votes for the Grand Winner.

I am elated and honored to be a finalist in this contest. May the best work win!

Happy Yarning.

  1. I was thrown off, because I was going to go straight through the light and pull over to talk with you at the corner, but then you decided to go across the crosswalk when it turned green. 🙂 What I actually said was “Check Facebook, Julia” with a big grin on my face.

    Congratulations. Yours is a fun story.
