As Valentine's Day approaches, write about your tale of heartbreak in between 100-200 words. Restrain from a rant and using the guilty party's real name. (Though it's tempting.) Use a pronoun or just an initial. He or she will know who they are. Craft your brief story with a beginning, middle and an end. What did you learn from this? How did it change you? Looking back, was it the best thing that ever happened to you? Or did it stay the worst? Was there an ironic twist? A happy ending?
We will post the entries to the Tango Me Home Blog. (www.tangomehome.com). Maria Finn will choose 10 finalists. All finalists will receive a copy of her heartbreak memoir, "Hold Me Tight and Tango Me Home". These will then go to our panel of judges who will choose the winning story. This story will be arranged into a tango song by Marlan Barry. All rights to the song will be the property of the composer, but the winner will have his/her story of heartbreak immortalized into a work of art and it will be danced to. For info. on judges, rules, guidelines and to enter visit http://tangomehome.com/heartbreak-competition/.
