At least I don't have to have a page count

Here's the decision with the short story: I will submit it in two parts.

As soon as I came to that conclusion, the words came just a little easier but I do need just a little more freakin time. I was busy with the novel and thought I could do it...but such was not the case. Then, reading Fred's submission, I realized I didn't need to finish it all at once! So I get to submit twice. Once this month and once next month. While I'll only get one piece out of it, at least I'll feel productive.

At least I don't have a page count necessary this month like some other people.

Who I love.


  1. Good idea. And sometimes just knowing you have a Plan B helps get Plan A done.

    Can't wait to read it, no matter how much of it you submit.

  2. Yeah, but you realize you may have to read it twice ;)

  3. :P Wuss, who I love.

    Just kidding (well, about part of that). Do what you've gotta do.

  4. I don't know...almost sounds like cheating...but, to be fair, cheating is better than chickening out. Although, when you think about it, cheating is a form of chickening out. But then again, like my uncle's best friend's little brother used to say, "Cheating a chicken out of his chance to cheat makes him only more apt to wanna peck your eyes out."

    ...I don't think my coffee's kicked in yet.
