Back in the Saddle

Having just been at FFO with "The Outlaw Marshal" and coming up at Crimefactory with "Cash Laramie and the Painted Ladies," I was going to lay low until my eBook is released in June. But I couldn’t turn down a request from Naomi Johnson to join the Watery Grave Invitational that she’s hosting at The Drowning Machine. But two and a half weeks to complete a story?! Whew, I normally take that long on the first paragraph. The competition includes Patti Abbott, Brian S. Roe, Chad Eagleton, Chris LaTray, Eric Beetner, Ian Ayris, Jane Hammons, Joe Hartlaub, John Kenyon, Liam Jose, Matthew C. Funk, Nigel Bird, Paul D. Brazill, Rosemarie Keenan, Sandra Seamans, Sean Patrick Reardon, Sigmund Werndorf, and Todd Mason.

Yeah, I know, I’m toast, but beginning today I started work on a story titled "Miles in Between." This is going to be fun. Wish me luck.

Ok so your cheerleader is sticking her head out of her cave for a moment. Go David Go!

Can writers have cheerleaders? Yeah I think so! Thanks, Chudney.

Randy Johnson said...

Impressive competition. You fit right in though.

Ron Scheer said...

Something else to look forward to...

David Barber said...

I'm more that sure you can pull it off, David. When I read the prompt that put up yesterday I instantly thought of you. How much cash actually changed hands then? Ha!

Good luck, matey! I'm looking forward to it.

Dave King said...

Yup, best of luck - not that you'll need it. Knock 'em dead!

David Cranmer said...

Where Randy? Where? :)

Mark your calender, Ron.

David, If I had I would have had her specifically use the prompt: Cash Larmamie! Horse can take in such a wide ranging host of ideas in genres outside westerns.

Dave, The best thing is I'll have another story for my eBook collection and the fun of the experience.

Hey, you're off to a good start with the title. "Miles In-Between" is clever.

Rich, Denise gets credit for that one.

Thanks, AC.
