I am about to share a story I have written. It’s a message about “acceptance.”
October is Autism Awareness Month in Canada.
I wrote this story because “Awareness” is still needed, but “Acceptance” is needed even more.

“I’m not missing any pieces.
Nor am I a puzzle, as some might say. I’m one colourful piece of the big picture,
Fitting in a different way.”
Entering contests is one way for me to step into the writing world. They serve to add a little motivation, as long as the timing is right for me to polish an entry.
