In case you’ve been wondering why I’ve been silent, it’s because the school year has begun. In addition to my creative pursuits, I am a mom to two school-age children. It is important to me that I am active at the school, and so I write the PTA newsletter and coordinate the school’s BTFE program. Adding that to birthday parties, fundraisers, and field trips makes for a pretty full schedule!
Of course, I’ve been keeping busy on a creative front, as well. I’m working on a new short story to start submitting by the end of next month, and I am gearing up for the annual masochism that is NaNoWriMo (Again I ask: Why November? January would be so much better!). I’ve been writing a few articles, as well. In fact, I recently had a pep-talk for NaGRANoWriMo up at Comicmix.com.
I read the entire anthology, and it was really interesting to see the kinds of thoughts and feelings people can evoke with a mere 25 words. My story is on page 141. If you read it, drop me a note and let me know what you think!
