No need to send presents.

Just kidding, send presents.

Anyway, been a while. How are you all doing? Really? That's to bad. You should see someone about that.

Okay enough about you. Since I've last been on I've been working on a story for the WoTF (I will win again!!!!). Just finished today. My frigde broke down last weekend. Called the repair guy who thought it was the defrost switch, which it was, but it wasn't everything. The fan had gone too, but I had to wait till monday to get that fixed.

Did I mention it was my birthday?

Well, that's about it. Should start on round 2 of the BIG BOOK. Hopefully I'll have it done by Chirstmas. For me, rewriting is sloooooowwwwww.

Any have a good summer. See you all around.

The first draft my 'big SF novel' is done, and it's put me in a right good mood.

I had to shorten it to thirty five chapters from forty, but that's because I really loosely outlined the last 10 and a lot of the stuff either got scrunched together, or was plain obsolete because of earlier plot changes.

Anyway, it's done and I'm glad. I'll give it a week or two to simmer then I'll begin the second round.

I just got a call from Joni, Contest administrator for the Writers of the Future, to tell me my lastest entry, Manifesto, was a semi-finalist. This is the second time I made the semi's, but what really impressed me was that she had called me at all. You usually don't get a phone call unless you've placed. So, thank you to Joni for making my day, and to K. D. Kentworth in advance for her critique.
