I forgot to mention, the deadline for submissions for the first issue is August 7. Yes, it's soon, but that gives you time to dig up something, riiiiiiiight?

The bed tap-danced across the room, and my closet devoured the pile of clean laundry on my desk. After taking care of the shade, I ran to comfort the crab. He blew a raspberry at me and scuttled into an empty box of Apple Jacks.

    Well, NaNoWriMo is over. In one way, I failed to meet my original goal, but I didn't fail epically, and I did make good progress. The original goal…
