... but in lieu of a proper State of the Horizon post, I'm going to take a few seconds to remind folks that there's a Writeoff this weekend for MLP minifics. Writing period starts in about 12 hours from the time of this post, and you get 24 hours to tell a story in 400-750 words. I've talked before about why Writeoffs are worthwhile and how they can help your writing, so if you're interested, check that post out for further details and then swing by writeoff.me.
Also, in case you missed it, a few weeks back Present Perfect posted reviews of all the stories submitted to my 80 Days writing challenge. I've already plugged the quality of the stories myself, but you no longer have to take my word for it: PP's review set had more "Highly Recommended"s than every other rating put together.
As for me, lately: I'm going through logistical and medical training so that I can start volunteering with my local Search & Rescue. I'm also working with BABScon's Theme Department, writing scripts for some of their promotional and at-con content. Between those two things, and a helping of political activism (as well as picking up some con crud at FC that wiped me out for most of a week), my well has been dry these last two months when it comes time to focus on my own creative enterprises. It's a temporary lull, though, and I do miss all y'all.
