New short story and new "did not make it to finalist stage"

It is fun to write short stories for the WD Your Story competition but it would be even nicer if I could get picked as one of the five finalists so that people can vote. 

I plan to start writing my series of planned short stories as soon as I have rewritten my novel and gotten past Script Frenzy.  I already know what I am doing for NaNoWriMo next November and if I only write novels in November, I have ideas already planned out for the next three Novembers.  The rest of the year will be reserved for short stories and rewrites and Script Frenzy.

Your Story submission for February

Yet another one of my short stories written for the Your Story competition has not made it to the finalist round.  Oh well.  I will keep on writing and keep on submitting because it is practice.  They give you the first line or the subject and you write a story that is 750 words or less.  Good practice.  Then I post the story on writers-network.

In the meantime, I am still rewriting the novel I wrote.  I will need to get that done since I want to participate in Script Frenzy in April and I want to qualify for the discounts and "winner's prizes" from NaNoWriMo.

I am still editing the novel I wrote for NaNoWriMo last November.  it seems every time I move on to the next chapter, I find something that I need to fix in the prior chapter.  I guess that is how it goes.  Then when I think I have it all done, I read it out loud and find something else or I suddenly realize that I am using something before I have introduced it.  Argh!  I will survive!
