Ok, so I didn't win or place in the contest, but I stand by what I said before--which was? Oh yeah, it's not winning that matters, it's... Oh, never mind.

I really have to get some work done this morning. I spent all Friday afternoon switching over to my new template, and now I'm tempted to spend all day making the colors opaque. I've read the accounts of my fellow bloggers who've started down this road. The consensus points to a journey that never ends with a satisfied smile.

I hope to start another short story soon. It already has a nice twist and surprise ending. Now I just need to start writing it. I should employ some of you as first pass editors to help flesh out grammatical errors. My wife busted me for a run on sentence in Hard Love, which reminded me of how cavalierly I threw it out there without so much as a second opinion.

I'll stop by tomorrow. Today I need to get serious.

It turned out to be a tough, tough contest. Your entry got great feedback. I thought it was frighteningly powerful.

P.S. I've added you to my links!

Grammar doesn't like me. It's a mutual thing.

I'm sorry you didn't win, but if it brings about more stories for us to read it's all good!

Nice layout - you threw me for a loop.

Love the new template. If I weren't so lazy, I'd do something with mine.

Great layout, Scott. The finishing touch would be some dreadlocks on your avatar!

The bike tour I went on yesterday (Sunday) took me through your town (mainly the town forest area). Beautiful place — nice spot to raise a family it looks like.

Looking forward to that story.

Don't know if you got to my blog becfore I had to take it down, but I didn't enter because I just wasn't happy with what I wrote. However, thank you for the compliment.

Hopefully my blog will be back soon - more details later, but the long and short is I've moved it temporarily to another address to avoid someone.
