I'm SO Competitive...

Taking today off to continue to work on a short story for a contest. Yeah, he had me at the competition part. I haven't written a short story since Brian Miller, of the hugely popular “WaystationOne”, and I collaborated back in 2010. Here's the link to "Mourning After" if you want to read what we wrote. We placed well in the competition, though we didn't win.

The story I'm working on now is coincidentally for another Brian, Briane Pagel, who has like forty-seven blogs, but I'll link you to the page where he, in excruciating detail (he's a lawyer),  explains the contest on his blog “lit”. Perhaps your competitive streak has been awakened and you want to join me.  (Ahem, Brian Miller, I mean you especially!)

I hope to be back Friday. If not, I'll give you and excerpt on Wednesday.
