New Focus

Hello Dear Friends,

I am suffering from serious LACK OF MOTIVATION.  So I need a new drive to help me feel the love of writing . . .

So, I am going to attempt to write a short story suitable to be entered in LTUE's contest.  You can find all the info here.  It is due January 15th, 2011.  And I am going to send something in.  My 6th grade daughter is too.  Neither of us have "finished" anything, so it will be good for the both of us.

Anyone care to join me?



  1. Absolutely! Me and the missus are going to make LTUE this time around (when is registration?)

    I've got a few short story ideas...what are you going to do?

  2. My daughter is doing something about a girl raised by zombies (her music teacher is having them do a Thriller dance at school).

    As for me, I'm not sure yet. I better get brainstormin . . .

    Graham, are you lovin' saying "the missus"? So excited for you two. It'll be good to see you at LTUE. :) Not sure on registration--I've never actually registered before. I just show up and hope for the best.

  3. Yes, I'm lovin' saying "the missus." She's so purdy :-)

    You should write about an epic showdown between a pair of rival superheroes based on Google and Wikipedia. There can be only one...

  4. That's a great idea. Nothing like a tight short story to get you back into the mix.

  5. I've never been to LTUE. I may need to try and make it this year. I'm not very good at short stories, but it might be a good exercise for me.

    I like the zombie concept!

  6. I do love a short story...maybe something a little twisted for Halloween...
