New #shortstory: FAMILY LEGACY @vocal_creators

It's Story Time!

Ciao, amici! Not long ago, I told you I (belatedly) discovered Vocal Media. So far, I’ve published four short stories on my page, some of which are part of challenges they offer (in which I might possibly win money and bragging rights). Other stories are just because I had something to say and wanted a place to say it.

Currently, Vocal is running an eight-stories-in-eight-weeks challenge. I hope I’m up for the task. I’m one for one right now. The entries are judged by a qualified panel, but if there’s a tie, votes are the tie-breaker, so if you click the [♡] button, you might be doing me a favor.

This week’s theme had to, at some point, take place in an old barn. If you’re interested in reading my take on the prompt (Family Legacy), you can find it here. Grazie!

  2. I loved your story and ending, Staci. I felt so much reading it and could relate to the pain of having to give up something with so many good memories attached. Well done xo
