I just lost that post when my computer blue screened. Lesson learned. Write posts in gmail, then paste them over. Grr.
On the other hand, I sent off my Clarion West application. I probably won't hear back until March and the competition-always fierce- will be greater this year because George R R Martin is teach one of the weeks. I don't know if my story submissions will make the cut or not but I had to try.
Wish me luck. Oh, and buy a Mac...apparently. Stupid Dells...grumble, grumble
