Sometimes I Forget Where I've Been...

and even where I am.    Candilynn Fite at My Writerly Musings had a writing contest last month.  I entered.  I forgot.  I won second place with only 81 words!!

Drop by and visit.  Candilynn is having another contest for July.  Just look at her picture prompt, enter your short story in three hundred words or less.  If chosen, there's a wonderful prize.  July's first place winner will win "Fireseed One" by Catherine Stine.

Did I tell you I won second place in June?!  Oh, I forgot.

Gail,

Good morning early bird! Congratulations on winning 2nd place with your writings on Candilynn Fite :-)
This morning, I was up...wide eyed at 3:30AM. Just laid in bed listening to all the noises of the old house settling. I finally said to myself enough, get your lazy butt out of bed. I made some coffee and I'm on my second cup reading through blog posts and e-mails. Not looking forward to my physical therapy appointment this morning (especially since, I just didn't do my PT homework this last week). Anyway, I should get moving. Plenty to do around here before going into town. Have a great day and try to stay cool in this heat.

Congratulations on 81 words win - great for you. I will hope over there n read. Still no rain for you. Is this usual weather for your area, or are you in serious trouble - like, does this happen every year or every 7 yrs or is this something NEW??
