the Unending Journey of the Wandering Author

A chronicle of the unending journey of the Wandering Author through life, with notes and observations made along the way. My readers should be aware I will not censor comments that disagree with me, but I do refuse to display comment spam or pointless, obscene rants. Humans may contact me at thewanderingauthor at yahoo dot com - I'll reply as I am able.

I have always known I was meant to write, even when I was too young to know the word 'author'. When I learned that books were printed, I developed an interest in that as well. And I have always been a wanderer, at least in my mind. It's not the worst trait in an author. For more, read my writing; every author illuminates their heart and soul on the pages they write upon.

Fiction Contest Deadline Extended

I must apologise to all of you; I should have been on top of this and let you know sooner. As it is, I've been so swamped, I barely noticed the problem a couple of days ago. Out of five entrants in my Longer Fiction Contest, only two have sent in their entries, and the tentative deadline was to be tomorrow. I did state that if that proved too difficult, I'd extend it.

One entrant has actually requested that I extend it, which I was considering doing in any case. It seems that perhaps I chose a bad time of year for the deadline, anyway. We're all recovering from the hectic pace of the holidays, battling seasonal illnesses, and generally swamped. So I am extending it to the first of March, at least. If any of you are concerned about that date, please let me know as soon as you can, so I can consider your input.

I had hoped to post a review of the second entry, The Milkman, today. Unfortunately, I pulled or tore something in my shoulder today, so simply typing this post is almost beyond me. Composing a review, then typing it, is more than I care to tackle right now. I'll post my review as soon as the shoulder is a bit better and I can think clearly. Thanks for your understanding.

WA: I'd love to read your review of The Milkman, but I'm afraid I'll have to withdraw it from consideration, as I have already set off on the road to self-publication with it through iUniverse.

Wrote to you already, WA. Wonderful news about that extension date. Thank you.

Ian, I understand. I will write a review, though, since you don't mind. The Milkman really has a few things going for it.

For good news, we can all wait a tad longer.

Hope the shoulder/sinus/aches and pains/etc. get better!
