Diving into a Celebratory Cupcakes... or 24 Cupcakes

Break out the extra cup of coffee and the gluten free cupcakes. 

This weekend, I learned that Splickety magazine acquired one of my flash fiction stories. Speculative fiction has only recently become an interest of mine, and I've never been one to write short pieces. I'm excited to see God do something bigger with my fiction, and I hope that he will continue to share my writing for others to read. 

This story was written merely as a challenge for myself. Could I herd all the scatter brain thoughts in my head into one cohesive story? It seems that I have succeeded. 

The magazine issue will come out in April. I'll post here when it's out, but check out the Splickety website to learn more about them. 

Changes like this remind me that God really is in control of everything.

     For years, I waited until I turned sixteen so I could sing that song. I didn't care that the two characters were falling in love. I just wanted to sing the lines, "I am sixteen," with accuracy. 
     Well, today I am seventeen. In the past year, I never got the chance to watch Sound of Music and sing along. This kind of made me sad . . . 
     Until I think back to all the times my sister, MK, sang the songs from The Sound of Music with beauty and grace. She fell in love with the movie just like had, and she doesn't care that she's not sixteen. She just loves music and singing. Listening to her was better than fulfilling a childhood dream.
