Stand By Me

I won, now what? Forward Motion!

I won with a slim 50,132 words. This year's story was difficult, because I was trying to make it contemporary fiction rather than all-fantasy.

So reworking it will be a challenge and I've wondered how to go about it. Forward Motion is a writing community. There are classes and challenges. That's one thought.
The other thought is finding a group here, or enrolling in a course.

But do I have what it takes to enter an MFA program for creative writing. Could I do it the way I did library school? Part-time squeezing classes in with family and work obligations? And then what about work obligations? Sometimes work is very demanding.

Right now, for instance. But I'll say no more and get back to work.
