As Prescribed

I’ve started work on a new short story entitled “As Prescribed.” I’m hoping this piece will be my entry to the Mayhew contest, held annually at BYU every February. It’s actually a light sci-fi, which is unusual for me. (I tend to do general fiction or fantasy short stories.) I’m also planning to write it in third-person objective, which I’ve also never done. But, if I pull it off, I think it will be a decent work of fiction. Here’s hoping.

On another note, I still need to edit my [very] short story entitled “The Bar.” I’ve had the peer reviews back for weeks, but haven’t touched it. “The Bar” is my first allegorical story, based off Lehi’s dream in the first book of Nephi.*

*The first book of the Book of Mormon, which is LDS scripture


  1. Interesting. I started a short story based off of Lehi's dream, too. It was my only attempt at creative writing while I was a missionary (not counting the April fool's letter I wrote my family, which totally snowed all of them).

  2. I want to hear about this April fool's letter...

    Also, we have artwork to your story at Leading Edge, if you want to take a gander.
