Thanks to WOW! Women on Writing for awarding my story The Frame of a Life 2nd place in their Summer 2020 Flash Fiction contest. I love WOW! They are always encouraging and offer great resources for writers.
“The Frame of a Life” explores love and family secrets, as discovered by a dutiful granddaughter. One of my 2020 goals is to present older female protagonists as complex individuals. I hope this story helps shine a light on the limitations our grandmothers faced, and how those constraints affected the following generations. As always, I hope this story makes you smile.
