Thanks for asking, Raveneye and yes I’m doing okay. Went back to work to help save for daughters wedding next year. Been writing and revising, Sundowners #2 and my space opera stories. Had time to submit a story, received a nice rejection:
Thanks for sending this piece in for Underland Arcana. After some consideration, we are going to pass on it. It didn’t work as well as we would have liked. We'll be reading again later this year. Please send us something else at that time if you are so inclined.
I would have entered the contest, but with Ramadan fasting going on my mind isn't running at full capacity.
Oh, gosh, no doubt! How many more weeks to go? Hoping next year the timing of the contest will be better for you!
Today was the 10th day so there’s 19 or 20 more days to go, depending on the sighting of the next new moon.
Next year it’ll start 10 more days earlier, so I’ll probably miss that one too lol. No worries though, I’m still working a bit everyday on that short story I started for the Noir contest. I’ll post it eventually.
Even if I haven’t finished writing it yet, I feel I’ve started accomplishing my goal; the words come to me more easily now.
We have until the 17th, right? I have something ready but not sure I'm entirely happy with it. If we have a few more days, then I'll work on it a little more. If not, I may have to withdraw my hat from this particular ring.
