Forty Pounds

Ever been on a diet?  Successful or not diets are a beast of their own.  Read how Marnie - who has successfully lost some weight (40 pounds) comes up with a plan to help her daughter Kate without harming their relationship. 
Link here--Forty Pounds or in the links segment at top -
I call it light reading!  And it has been nominated story the Howard O'Hagan Award for Short Story through the Writer's Guild of Alberta.  Thank you to the folks at Prairie Journal!

100 Day Challenge - the end?

I only have a few days left of my 100 days.  The 100 Day Challenge. by my definition, included a set of goals to be met during a stretch of days 100 long.  Now it is time to take stock.  It was worth it.  I discovered a number of things about my writing, about my personal motivation skills and about my hang-ups.  And now I hope to apply my new knowledge after the 100 days is over.  Wish me luck!
