Guess what? I’m actually posting this blog while in the middle of a writing contest! That’s right; I’m writing you surreptitiously! I am one of about 20 contestants participating in the Las Vegas Book Festival Flash Fiction Contest. We were given 90 minutes to write a story based on a Super Sekrit prompt that was given to us right when it was time to start. The theme? Las Vegas: City of Second Chances. So what did I do? I pretty much wrote a Stilettos and Shirley Temples installment where I gave up the life. Ha, like that would ever happen! I finished early and now I’m typing one-handed because I’m holding Mason and billie the girl’s super cute, 2 1/2 week old baby while they finish their stories. I LOVE life, sometimes!
I’ll let you know how the contest ends up. We won’t find out for at least a week, so I hear. But Mason and I are going to have a dance-off in the parking lot JUST BEAUSE WE CAN.
