And now for something completely different

I haven't written more than a flash fiction piece all year. My short story bone seems to have taken a holiday of sorts and I didn't know how i was going to get it back. I would like to thank R.Thomas Riley and Aaron Polson, two of my favorite writers,  for pointing out the Permuted Press antho coming up about time travel. I had an idea almost immediately and now, this morning, I shall set forth to write it before it slips from my ear and hurts itself on the floor.  With any luck, tomorrow I will have another short story to my name and my first finished first draft all year. By the end of next week I hope to have a polished story, worthy of submission. Time will tell.

And now for your viewing pleasure some helpful hints on how not to be seen. And something completely different

Best of luck with the story. I'm glad you found the short story bone. It's the best bone in the body.

Good luck with the story! I hadn't been writing much short stuff for at least a year, and now, suddenly, I'm in the mood again. It's funny how things go in cycles.

Aaron, I am going to need all the luck I can. I am 1K into it and I like where it is going- so far.

Davin, I go in spurts as well. I may write 20 shorts in 6 months and then nothing for awhile. It sucks like that. Refilling the well I like to think. :)

HAHAHA. Thanks, that was a fun lunch-time break, watching that :D The value of not being seen is great indeed.

I see you're already progressing well into your story. *waves pompoms*

That antho temps me, as well. Yet I know so little about time travel.

Katey, thanks for helping cheerlead me on.

Nat, This will be my second attempt at time travel. The first one ended with a- um, nevermind. If I told you I would have to kill you, again. :)

Time travel! Oh, I have just the story! Or I will have, once I go back in time and tell my past self to write it. Good luck!

Those Monty Python boys at it again.

Good luck with the story.
