My creative life has been well. I was able to write several very short pieces this week just for fun (hint fictions around 25 words). I also submitted for a May 31 contest…the cult of me monthly contest. Which one are you doing?
I am writing a short for The Lane of Unusual Traders http://thelaneofunusualtraders.com but I’m afraid the deadline with elude me.
Oh cool, and congrats on the acceptance of your other story there. I just caught that today.
Thank you very much. I may have to wait until Stage 3 opens up to submit my short; don’t think it will be polished enough by Sunday. In fact, I know it won’t be polished enough by Sunday.
I’ll get it ready and keep it on file for later.
