Short Stories

I've been working on short stories for a contest later this year in Oklahoma City. It got me to thinking that maybe my friends out in "cyber land" might like to visit a website or two concerning short story writing.

New Year, new projects

I hope all of you are making progress in the goals you set for 2007. The wintery weather we've had for the past few days has made my going to the gym an impossibility. However, I'm not giving up. As soon as the weather permits, I'm off to sweat on the elliptical machine and the treadmill.
