My words entertain me

I have spent the month working on a short story contest that had a word limit of 7,000.  As per my writing process by the time I got it submitted I had numerous other stories that could grow from the rejects for this one. 

So I tackled a second competition based off my notes for a 5000 word limit.  Despite taking less time to write, which was because I had so much background in place, I love my second story as much as my first.  Being based in the same world and time made it faster.

I love that for March my stories have been what I read before going to sleep.  My characters lived in my mind, background music to the moment.  Even if neither get selected, the process was wonderful for me.
