Opportunities in the Great Big Literary World- November 7, 2011

Song of the Day: The Glow by Willie Hutch

   Hello all! How was the weekend? I had a pretty productive one. I spent most of the weekend helping my sister with her wedding invitation company. On Saturday we helped to assemble centerpieces for a wedding and Sunday she created elaborate signs for all the vendors at the Disney Bridal Stroll. I managed to squeeze in some writing time. Yesterday, I wrote 2500 words, but I'm still 3,000 behind on my NanoWriMo novel. Yikes! I don't work on Mondays so I'll be spending the day trying to play catch up. I know that this month will be harder for writers participating in National Novel Writing Month to submit their work, but I urge you to try and squeeze it in if you can. Why not try submitting something shorter like a Haiku or a short short story? Those don't take too much time to compose and you'll be keeping up with submissions. Maybe you have a story ready to go that's been sitting around and collecting dust? Submit it!
