Who's ready for Thanksgiving? Raise your hand! Notice that mine did not go up in the air. Like many of you, I'm expecting family for the holidays. And probably like many of you, I'm scrambling to straighten, clean, declutter, etc, to find room for the guests I'm looking forward to enjoying. I cleared off a nice shelf in a closet and offered it to my sister, but for reasons I don't quite comprehend, she says she'd much rather sleep in a bed. Go figure. So bed tackling will be the order of the coming week.
But that doesn't mean I've forgotten about you wonderful guests who visit this blog and my website! So to show my appreciation to you all, I've launched a brand new website drawing. Again, there will be THREE lucky winners. All you have to do is visit my website, and follow the instructions on my News & Contests page. I hope you'll visit there soon!
2008 CHRISTMAS STORY CONTEST (scroll down)
For any writers out there, I'd like to let you know about a fun Christmas short story contest going on. The prizes are small (think "books"), but it's a nice way to stretch your writing wings during this busy holiday season. Stories can be written in any genre, "should be positive and family friendly". Word length: 2000 words or less. Deadline: December 13th. Full details can be found by clicking here. (And no, your story does not need to be "religious".)
I'm thinking about entering. I'd love to see some of you there, too!
