So I’ve got an outline down and a decent start for the hereafter entitled Great Biker Caper short story entry for NYCMidnight’s 2012 Short Story competition.
Me and my paranoid self are a little worried about disclosing the actual progress online right now. Unfinished rough draft and all — you understand, dear readers. Headway, however, is being made and I’ve got a moderately clear course ahead. It’s times like these when a memorable quote from a certain historical figure comes to mind:
“Don’t worry guys, it’s just over there, trust me.” ~ Christopher Columbus
In other news, I was planning to write up a review of a book I had finished in recent months, but due to the deadline of the aforementioned contest that likely won’t be happening. Yet I feel compelled to say that while I am brimming with unjustified enthusiasm, the subject matter of the story itself was daunting at first but now I’m finding it delightfully fun. The folks over at Wirting Excuses (http://www.writingexcuses.com/2012/06/17/writing-excuses-7-25-writing-capers/) were incredibly helpful and really got me going.
