Finally, Some Work

We have been having a fun and busy weekend.  More pictures later today!  For now, I just posted an excerpt of my story "Tunnel" under My Work up on my Nav Bar.  I entered it under the Glimmer Train Short-Story Award for New Authors category for May.  There is one day left to enter if you're interested, or if you want to check out other upcoming deadlines for their Short-Story contests.  If you are not familiar with it, Glimmer Train is a literary magazine that publishes quarterly.  Stories from its pages have been chosen for the Pushcart Prize, O.Henry, New Stories from the South, New Stories from the Midwest, and Best American Short Stories anthologies.  It's been easy for me to forget about submitting short stories since I'm so deep in my novel, but I figured this was a good place to start moving again.  Now I simply have to try and forget about it until they announce the winners July 31st.  Always easier said than done...

  1. Did you read this at your thesis reading? It is familiar. Of course, I enjoyed it then as well!

  2. You are so right! Good memory. Still my favorite story, and really the last I've written since I've been focusing on novels. I do have a half of one done that I think I can finish now--it takes place on a beach called Quintana south of Galveston and Rob and I just went with Saw, so now I'm ready to complete it. :) Miss you!
