Been trying to ask about the new forum (Rob's) that got mentioned a bit earlier, but the system keeps telling me my message has too few characters. Is this enough?

Try that link, Lyn. I hope it works. :)

PS: I guess it doesn't, but you could type it in.
Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.
Hard copies of all are on Amazon.

Working hard on my writing.
You ask me what I thought about
Before we were lovers.
The answer is easy.
Before I met you
I didn't have anything to think about.

@noizchild - What are you working on now?

I'm tossing around the idea of writing on nano again but not sure i'm up to the challenge.

I'm trying to start a short story for the latest Glimmer Train contest - I've got about 10 days left :shock: As always, it's the first few sentences that drive me crazy - once I get those down solid, I should be okay. But I'm also facing all the fall yard and house work prepping for snow. Blech.

Break a pencil. Which category were you planning to enter?

Ten days should be plenty for a short story if you have an idea to work on that you like.
You only need 300, or 1000, words depending on the category.

Sept/Oct 2017 Short Story Award for New Writers

CONTEST GUIDELINES New writers
Most entries run from 1000 - 5000 words, but any lengths up to 12,000 words are welcome.

CONTEST GUIDELINES very short fiction
The Very Short Fiction Contest is open to all writers.
Any story that has not appeared in a print publication is welcome.
We invite any length stories from 300 to 3,000 words.

I'm going for the New Writer award. And yes, there's plenty of time left, but I want to give myself as much time as possible to build up my anxieties...
