I seem to have contracted a silly back injury, so I am coming to you now via dictation. I leave it to your fertile imaginations just how long it would take to polish off one of my patented super-long posts in this manner. (Even now, every fiber of my injured being longs to wrench myself up, drag myself across the room, and check the punctuation.) Until I figure out how to defy doctors orders to stay away from my desk and/or figure out how to type while lying flat on my back, my posts will be reduced to the briefest of updates.
I don’t even have the wherewithal to include a link to our fabulous ongoing contest; in order to find out how to win a critique of your first page of manuscript, I am afraid that you will have to scroll down a couple of posts. An activity, I am pained to report, that is currently beyond my physical capacities, so flaunt your healthy backs by checking it out.
I will be getting back to you and our ongoing series just as soon as I am able — or, knowing my constitutional incapacity for extended idleness, just a bit sooner. Sit up straight, everyone, and keep up the good work!
