Like so many other writers I know, I have several stories swirling around in my head at any given time. When I pass by people on the street I often see them as characters in my stories or wonder about how a story could be built around them. There is one story in particular that I started writing before I started writing Waking the Sleeping Demon that I have been burning to finish. This contest has motivated me to do it. I'm not going to labor too long over any one aspect I'm just going to write. I can't wait to get started!
