Okay, so I promised an update of the blog soon. It’s coming. I promise. But I’ve been rather busy with an equally important endeavor: a short story. That’s right, I’m trying my luck with the Writer’s Digest Short Story Competition. The early bird deadline is this Friday, November 15, so I’ve been working like a fiend to get my story in tip-top shape. I’m still working on my novel, but placing in a contest could be a great boon for my career. So here goes nothing! I will let you guys know what happens. But I have a long time to wait. Results aren’t announced until the end of February. Wish me luck!
