Somehow, against all conceivable odds, I have made it into the finals of the NYC Midnight short story competition. Therefore, instead of working on my podcast this weekend, I'll have 24 hours to write a 1,500 word short story on a subject I will have no idea about until it's time to start writing.
I'm blown away that I made it through the first two rounds. That means I have two short stories that I think are good enough to send out for publication. Just need to figure out where to send them.
Podcast is on track still - should be able to record the first few and release them before the end of May. Those of you who have submitted stories - expect to hear from me soon.
