Alas mine is still a work in progress. But it would of went something like this:

A Native American woman loses her battle to save the last of her hearing; in the silence of her deafness she has to come to terms with a past she has been running from. Suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome can she remember enough of her abusive childhood, relive the violence that follows her into adulthood and still retain some measure of sanity? Or will her deafness be the final nail in her coffin?

Sigh...back to the writing board I go. (Hugs)Indigo

Just out of curiousity, will the winning 3 sentence entries (20) be posted for the rest to observe? I thought I might suggest it, to serve as a example for others(or to myself, *lol*) of sentence structures and prose that grabs the attention of literary agents... ???

Quick question. I currently have a query with the Knight Agency. I submitted just before the contest was announced. Does that disqualify that manuscript?
