Can't wait:) I'm getting back in it. And I'm beyond excited to rejoin the community here. I've missed it.

I appreciate that, Deb! More than you know:) I'd like to get back into shape before I make a run at the non-fiction page turner :D

You can enter both, Zac. You can enter one in the fiction one, and one in the nonfiction. We have both this year (and entries aren't exactly rolling in).

Both! Wow… I had better get to it then :-) I'm a little slack for ideas in the fiction department. Especially for a novel :shock:

You could resubmit the one from last year. We are fine with that. :D

That's scary! the competitor in me is afraid of that manuscript. I'll consider it, but no promises:)

Alright... I thought about it:) I'm going to rewrite it rather than resubmit it with a brush-up. :superhappy

And that's this quarter all wrapped up. Where did that time go?

The new Challenge Schedule is up, starting October 6. Get ready for another great quarter of creativity.
