On a personal note, my wife's health is still not good and she has the medical specialists pretty puzzled. We have spent much more time than either of us would like in hospitals or exam rooms. She probably won't set a record for number of CT scans in a calendar year, but she might get an honorable mention.
That, of course, limits the time available for writing. And now football season and the new television season is approaching, so that will limit writing time even more. Other than Bronco football I'm only dedicated to watching the three NCIS shows, now that Castle and CSI are gone, but I may try out one or two new ones. Oh, and Blue Bloods. I'm a Tom Selleck fan.
On writing, there is some good news. One of my favorite short stories (that I've written), "Battle Scars," won an honorable mention in a speculative fiction short story contest back in 2013. Now Digital Fiction Publishing has accepted this as a reprint in their Quickfic label. "Battle Scars" is one of a few dozen stories in this on-line anthology. It is here: http://digitalfictionpub.com/category/quickfic/ My story appears second on the list. DFP will pay me more for this than I originally won in the contest.
This is the second time DFP has published a reprint of one of my stories. The first, "Transition" was published in June (See my June 4th post).
I really do like "Battle Scars." Next posting I'll explain its origin. In the meantime, I hope you'll all read it and enjoy.
There's also a change in the links to my other published writing on the Right Writes tab.
I wish everyone a happy and safe Labor Day...especially any women giving birth this weekend.
