I haven't updated my writing progress for a while and that's mostly because I haven't made much progress this week. The kids are now out of school and underfoot during the day, which cuts down on writing time significantly. I've been doing most of my writing longhand in a notebook at the kids' swimming lessons. I'm up to 7,500 words on the Writers of the Future entry with about three weeks until the quarter's end. It'll get done, but there won't be much time for revising. That will probably work in my favor because I tend to make things worse when I rewrite.
Also, I have received my certificate for my silver honorable mention in the first quarter for Writers of the Future, and it's twice as large as a regular HM certificate. I'll post a photo of the two for comparison sometime this weekend. Suffice to say, I don't know what to do with the new one. I keep my others in plastic sleeves in a three-ring binder, but this one won't fit. And I'm not going to frame it. It's a very nice rejection, but a rejection nonetheless.
