So, in preparation for NaNoWriMo, I thought I'd break out my writing skills that have lain dormant as I experience the dreaded computer=work loathing. So, I heard tell of the Scarlet Boa competition which required 500 words (my first attempt was 1500, oh, the irony). This year's theme is a paranormal encounter which seemed a reachable genre for me. (In comparison to a Regency historical, which I enjoy reading but am nowhere close to ready to write one.)
The entries have now been posted. Check it out.
