O... M... G...!

Whew! Over the last twenty minutes, there have been NINE people in the store! And a bunch of them bought stuff! I'm exhausted. Perhaps I'll have a bit of a lie down.

The good news is that the Internet is back. Our provider is moving, not going out of business, so the disappearing service was probably caused by someone in their office kicking a plug out of the wall or something. For the moment, things are Back To Normal.

By The Time We Got To Wordstock, We Were Half A Thousand Strong....

I did enter the Wordstock fiction contest. I was going to, then I wasn't, then I decided I had no good reason not to. The piece I submitted was a short story I wrote years ago. At 550 words, it needed trimming by 10% to qualify, and damned if that didn't make it a better story, too. I don't want to post it here, but if you want to read it, let me know and I'll email it to you.

One submission in three months really isn't an impressive pace, but it's something. I intend to do better than that in the next three months. At least two submissions. I can do that.
