I finished the rough draft of my story for the LDS Publisher's contest. What a hoot! I never thought I'd write a story that takes place in a Book of Mormon setting. I enjoyed the challenge. My story has almost 6,000 words--I was having too much fun. I'll have to trim it down to 5,000. Here's Dave snowboarding on the slope behind our pasture last weekend.

I've come up with names for the characters in my Book of Mormon short story. They'll do for now. I can always change them later if I need to. :-) So I'm off and running with the first scene. This was the rosey sunrise this morning taken from my front porch.

I took this picture of the horses this morning. It was a foggy, frosty day in the Bear Lake Valley. I'm excited about the Book of Mormon short story contest on the LDS Publisher's blog. I already have a main character, a setting and a plot. Creating appropriate fictional names has been a challenge--and names are very important in defining character. I've never tried to write a story that takes place in a Book of Mormon setting. It makes studying the scriptures fun.
