In Case You Were Wondering

where I've been, I've been busy at trying to finish my entry for the 2005 Creative Loafing Short Fiction contest. This year's theme is "Smoke." There's a maximum word limit of 3000. Right now, I'm at about 1300. The deadline is this Monday, the 8th. I'm a little embarrassed at how it's been going.

I'm hoping that by posting this blog entry - by putting it out there, that is - it'll force me to finish. Last year, when I came in 2nd, I actually didn't finish the story until 2 hours before the 5 p.m. deadline. I hand delivered to Creative Loafing in rush hour traffic.

Anyway, it helps that the Falcons don't play this Sunday, so I can actually get some work done. Wish me luck!
