January is come and gone with February standing tall! So many changes have already occurred, not the least of which is my move to Portland, Oregon – Hello Stumptown!
I’m actually talking about new writing contests! PitMatch is sure to be a great time and I will definitely be watching from the sidelines, if not downright participating as an entrant. My MS is looking for a long-term commitment and has no need of the mild flirtations that have taken up its dance card these last few months. It’s looking for longevity! Inspiration! Loyalty! A contract! And if not all that, at least the opportunity to work on its quirks, pitfalls, and stray hairs. A little window for self-improvement from specific critiques, maybe?
On another front, I’ve had relative success on the flash fiction contest genre but can’t share anything yet. Huzzah!
Hoping to get you details for the next contests that catch my eye soon! Meanwhile, thank your stars you’re not thigh-high in moving boxes and can still reach your computers without back bending over a couch.
