The winner of Mindflights Issue #5 is Michelle! Congrats Michelle! I've sent your email over to Angie and she'll be in touch with you concerning your prize.
Now, as for my WIP, Desert Nomad, I'm at 35,000. Not much more than last week, but that's because I worked on two short stories this week. And I'm taking the WIP slow this time, perfecting every sentence for those agents :) It's a new tactic and you'll have to stay tuned to see if it works.
The two short stories that I finished are Malicifer, for the Sword and Sorceress Anthology
and Lion's Heart
A story I wrote for my friend's new publication Hazard Cats. Everyone should take a look and consider writing something. The only criteria is that it has to be about cats.
With this story I tried to write outside my comfort zone. For the first time in my writing life, my setting is Africa and the POV is a male warrior. I had a lot of fun imagining the bush and researching plants and animals in Africa.
Have you written outside your comfort zone? What was it?
