NPR Contest

One of the ways a writer can become more established in the writing market is to enter writing contests. Now there are hundreds out there but I was pointed in the direction of a really fun one set up by NPR, National Public Radio. Here is the link for any of you other writers that might be interested, Three-Minute Fiction. It will be a good exercise to come up with a really good story in just 600 words!

Fall is here and with that comes all the chores of changing seasons from raking leaves to changing out the closets and preparing for winter. It is a nice change and I like the new opportunities. Stories I write in the fall tend to reflect the weather since I can experience the nuances first hand. Have fun with your writing and take your laptop outside and enjoy the cooler temperatures....
