Opportunities in the Great Big Literary World- July 17, 2013

Song of the Day: Tubthumping (I Get Knocked Down)

   Hello all! It's been a while. I've been so busy, it's sort of unreal. I had a spectacular weekend with my writing buddies a couple of weeks ago. We got some quality writing time in, got to visit my favorite discount bookstore (Book Warehouse) and spent a day at Disney! It was a weekend of relaxation, but I also got to talk publishing and writing with some of my best friends. It was much needed. We also decided that we were going to participate in Camp NanoWriMo this month. I was initially going to experiment with a short story collection, but my novel (the one I've been working on forever) kept calling me. My characters speak to me, and this particular one, won't let me rest. When they speak, I must listen. I'm sure you other writers can relate. Thus, I'm using Camp Nano to edit instead. I did manage one short story though. I may not be posting anymore opportunities until after July is over. Forgive me. In the meantime, hope the ones I've listed today will keep you busy!
