I didn't officially enter the contest. Why?, you ask? Well for one thing, I have a full-time job, so unless I want to be writing until midnight or so every evening... And that's not counting all the after school stuff I have to do, like PTO meetings, fall festivals, etc.
Secondly, I've already started a couple of WIPs, and my purpose is to FINISH them. Yeah, it's like cheating, which is why I'm not actually signed up.
Thirdly, I've been in a writing slump. For the first time in a looooong time, I haven't put fingers to keyboard to actually WRITE anything for over a month. Maybe my brain needed the time off. Maybe I'm trying to avoid burn-out. I dunno. But it's time I got my nose back to the grindstone.
