Before we strike out: there are paintings and stories to be finished, lists to be written and checked off, supplies to be bought.
This week I have been writing a bit more, buoyed up by a 3rd place win for my entry 'No Butterfly Wings' last week in Luminous Creatures Summer of Super Short Stories Competition. So far I have written 'Madam Doofay and the Six Sugar Candy Skulls' for Luminous Creatures, 'A Place Beyond Belief' for Flash Frenzy at The Angry Hourglass, an entry for the Janet Reid Literary Shark Contest, a draft of a Chris & Mike adventure for Brian Creek's competition and the beginnings of a story inspired by adventures from our weekend for a competition, Not bad :)
READING STATUS: Maps and websites for adventures. Editing drafts for flash contests - chipping away words to the bone of the stories.
HAT STATUS: Canada baseball cap (gift) has made a reappearance - perfect for keeping my hair out of the way as I restart Couch to 5K...today is week 2, run 3.
WRITING STATUS: See above blog post for flash fiction exploits - sparks...sparks.....
WILDCARD STATUS: Sometimes you have to make it yourself, rather than wait, cut it out of cardboard and draw that joker on in red crayon......then, shuffle.
