August insanity awaits ...

Next month is going to be crazy. I only hope I can keep up with writing at least somewhat.

What with our tenth anniversary, the last month of summer in Alaska, Group Kick training weekend, and a dozen other things, I wonder if there will be anything left of me by September. At least it's all wonderful stuff. :)

On the writing front, I'm still waiting to hear back about (pauses to count) ... one ... two ... three ... four ... five different stories.

Two are contest entries, and I'll hear about one on August 31st, and one on September 15th.

One is a writing prompt contest that got extended for an indefinite period of time. I'm debating on whether I need to send an inquiry about that one since I sent mine in a month ago and there's no telling when the contest will end.

One story I'm expecting to hear back from any day.

The last one I have no idea when I might hear back about. I sent an inquiry to the status of that one and was informed the piece had not been received. They allowed me to resend it and said they would get back to me soon.

Writers do not twiddle their thumbs while waiting. Their fingers dance over the keyboard, creating wonderful new stories -

Or they get caught up in the latest video game to cross their path. Heeheehee.

As for my Write 1 Sub 1 goals, I am depressingly behind in the number of stories I should have finished and subbed, at least a month's worth. But I still consider this experiment extremely successful as I've done more this year than I ever imagined I possibly could.

Yes, I am suddenly adverb happy. I spend so much time writing adverbs out, I figured I deserve a moment to relax my guard.

I just finished a new story today. Will polish it up tomorrow and send it off.

I'm going to go now before I start to sound like a broken record.
