"Higher Minds" – My New Short Story!
If you find yourself so inclined, I would appreciate you taking a few minutes to swing by LitReactor and read/rate Higher Minds, the story I’ve submitted for their Teleport Us contest.
I spent a considerable amount of time the past couple of weeks putting it together. Much thanks goes out to my wife and Oliver for their amazing contributions to generating ideas, reviewing and editing. And I can’t forget the rest of you who visit my blog and who’s blogs I also visit. You guys are the best inspiration a newbie writer could ask for.
Here’s a brief synopsis:
Brady is a 14-year old girl whose life is about to change. A bright kid with an artistic flair, she’s been chosen for admission into Higher Minds, a prestigious government program that handpicks the world’s most promising young thinkers. Brady’s apprehensive about losing the freedom to determine her own future, but should that be her greatest concern?
I would appreciate any feedback you may have. I’m so relieved to have finished a story. It’s been a long time, but it has my blood pumping to start the next one.
