Monday Sept. 20, 2021 Late summer evening in Helvetia, Oregon Greetings fellow readers! Welcome to my blog where I plan to offer my reflections on books, movies, and documentaries that I want to share. I hope you find something here that interests you and ask that you please post reactions and ideas as well. Forgive any missteps on this forum since I"m not the most computer savvy person on the planet. But I will learn as I go! Thanks for stopping by. May the world treat you well. ~ Cathryn
October 1, 2021 You Won! Hey Cathryn, thank you for submitting ' Take that Drink ' to the Reedsy Writing Prompts Contest! Your story was gorgeously atmospheric and deeply moving, and in equal parts painful and hopeful. Your depiction of the world we're now living in, and the personal tragedies facing so many families everyday which are so often lost in the scale of COVID and drowned out by sheer numbers, was affecting and delicately rendered. And we were very grateful for a happy ending! Thank you for sharing your work with us. We are delighted to let you know that it won the Come Rain or Shine edition of our contest! You can check it out here: https://blog.reedsy.com/short- story/v3e8ti/
