Author of WICKER PARK WISHES, a novel, published by Eckhartz Press "It's like 'Hi Fidelity' from a woman's perspective. A 90s book about relationships." - John Siuntres, WordBalloon. Language discussion and expression, a view from the city: "A fascinating and enlightening look at language and other important matters" - Rick Kogan, Chicago Tribune "...definitely an interesting voice!" - Languagehat.com "...a great site!" - Mary Beard, Times Literary Supplement
My mind feels like mush. I succeeded in writing 50k of fiction this month. This is the second time I've won--the last time was in 2002. It was a lot more fun this time around, since I took it for what it is: a time to play in the sandbox and pump out lots of words in any way I saw fit.

Congratulation, mj. YOW HOO!
Congratulations! I was too chicken to try it this year. Maybe next time!
There is no reason to be chicken. All you have to do is write like 1500 words a day, or if you're a late starter like me, a few thousand words a day. There are no rules, except to write fiction. You don't have to worry about a plot, or acceptance by the publishing powers that be; you can write whatever you want. In fact, I bet you could easily write something about Macvasia (as long as it's fiction).
Thanks for the congratulatory sentiments. Now all I have to do is experience the blessings that Johanna Edwards has.
