writing news

I was trying to get some outside stuff done before fall weather hit, but then fall weather hit. So I retreated inside to wait for warmer, drier weather (if we get any), and started work on a short story for the Writer's Digest Short Story Contest.

I've finished the second draft, and have set it aside to cool before working on revision. As is usual for me, I'm going to have to cut down on the opening some, and probably rework the ending a bit, but so far I'm fairly satisfied with it. It's a ghost story -- sort of. :-)

Meanwhile, on the day I started that story, I got some encouragement in the form of this:

"Congratulations! You have been nominated for round two at "Running with Scissors". The categories that you have been nominated in are listed below along with the name of the Fiction/Art or both. Please use the information at the end of this email to contact me if you approve your nomination. You must approve before the end of the nomination period. These dates are also listed below.

Well, it's hard for me to have a fun morning this time of year -- throughout October I have to restrain myself from banging my head against the wall whenever I see the long-range weather forecast. But it was a pretty good day, and definitely good news!

thanks! But I have to say, I'm a lot more nervous about the contest than who wins the award.
