A bit of sad news followed by better news: it would appear my quest to collect the entire set of themed HeatSheets at Phaze
has come to an end. Dulce
, my submitted work, did not make the final list. However, it was not wholly rejected. I have the opportunity to lengthen the work into a category and add it to the growing Dareville series. Dulce
was not meant to be a Dareville work, per se, but there were references to Cal Briscoe and lyrics to a Brady Garriston tune featured. Dulce
followed the story of a drummer friend of Cal's, slumming in Caracas to forget the demise of his marriage. In retrospect, I do feel the story is larger than the 12K word limit.
So, I will make Dulce
a category length, at the very least. Rather than reference Cal, I'll bring him into the story at different points to interact with Neil, the drummer. How much interaction, I haven't decided. ;-)
