GISHWHES has ended and I’m trying to return to my abnormal normal. That routine I love so much was completely lost in a week full of chaos, slapdash, and mind-numbing exhaustion. Saturday I had to put my house back together, and Sunday I slept about 12 hours and still only felt partially coherent. There’s still cleaning, laundry, and reorganizing to be done, but for now, at least I can see my floor again. For a little insight into what we do, one of my team members created a Tumblr account last year and has been slowly adding pictures from this year’s hunt. You’ll quickly understand that I am not joking when I say it’s a crazy week; 15 people to a team, usually not in the same place, trying to accomplish 185 items. Madness.
So, now that that’s over, I need to get back to work. It will probably take a few days to read all the articles and such that are pending in my inbox, but here are a couple things in particular I’d like to share, both found via Aerogramme Writers’ Studio –
1. The Cesar Egido Serrano Foundation’s ‘Museum of Words’ International Flash Fiction Contest is accepting entries until November 23rd. The competition is for very short fiction pieces (max of 100 words). Top prize is $20,000, with three runners-up each receiving $2,000. Not too shabby. 🙂 Here’s the link for more information.
2. Wattpad (this is the link to the article) – for writers and readers. This sounds like a wonderful opportunity, and as I’m still making my way through this labyrinth of information, if any of you are familiar with this site, please share your insights.
And to get myself back on track, here’s the quote of the week:
Happy Monday! And best wishes to you!
