Re: Submit, submit, submit

My HM was the first chapter of my first novel. I wrote the story in 2013 and decided to rewrite the ending so the chapter ended as it began.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 33

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 33

I read an article where L Ron wrote a story in two hours and sold it.
May not work for this contest but it was an impressive accomplishment.
In my first year of writing seriously I had 16 unfinished stories.
Now I finish almost every effort at storytelling.

Got an email from Galaxy Press (Joni) offering me a badge and HM congratulations.
At first I thought I had received another but it was a mention of the one I got last year.

Still working on my entry for this quarter. wotf015. I've started writing my way to places I've never thought of before.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

During my younger days I was a single parent for awhile.
I received chuckles when I made the statement I should be recognized on Mothers Day.
Alas, the laughs were all I got.
Oh well, Fathers Day isn't that far away.
