After the big news of WCDR’s own Deepam Wadds winning first place in the WCDR short story contest (which had over 220 entries from all over the globe!), there’s never been a better time to encourage our members to try their hand at writing short stories.

I normally get skittish around doctors, but there is one who has given me the very best of medicine ever since I was a small child. I’m speaking of Dr. Seuss of course. It’s his birthday, so let’s celebrate the man who knows how to spin a rhyme.
A story with rhyme in every book, making readers simply look,
At life a very different way, a joyful read to start the day,
Or end the night while tucked in bed, with thoughts of Whoville in your head.
On this fine day the Seuss was born, so ring the bell and blow the horn,
Send the doctor birthday wishes, with a fox, a sock, and red and blue fishes.
(I never claimed to be a Seuss…)
