Just a quick update post. I'm spending my weekend doing something I've wanted to do for years - I decided to join the International 3-Day Novel Contest. Every year, people around the world spend Labor Day weekend hunched over their computer or notebook, trying to write approximately 100 double-spaced pages (or more) of a complete novel. Writers submit their work, and in the Spring, the winner gets their book published by Anvil Press.
I'm stocked up on groceries, my dog is staying with a friend (who has also agreed to sign my witness affidavit, that I followed the rules of writing, most importantly that writing only occurred between Saturday from 12:00 am until Monday at 11:59 pm), and I've got 27 pages written. Let's do this.
