My posting here on the blog trickled to almost nothing when my Dad died a few months ago. I had no energy for anything and started to wonder if I’d ever find my words again. When words did start to trickle from my pen, they were so dark that I joked to my sister that if the family saw what I was writing they’d have me committed.
I wrote my way out of the blues, eventually, and the project that played a big part in helping me get there won the poetry portion of eMuse’s Summer Madness Contest:
Art: Christie Lindauer·
Fiction: Drew Beatty·
Poetry: Nara Malone
The winning pieces will be published in the September edition of eMuse, so tune in next issue to see the amazing contributions we received.

A friend said last night, “I bet your Dad would be proud.” I think she’s right.
