I’m back…regarding my Cauldron of Eternal Inspiration with teary eyes. I had a wonderful time, going off on vacation, but I have missed this place! I’ve also missed #RainbowSnippets, our wonderful Saturday group of GLBT posters. Each Saturday, everyone contributes six sentences of GLBT fiction. It can be your own, or someone else’s. The six sentences just need to be GLBT.
I’m sharing my current Camp NaNoWriMo project; an extended version of ‘On the Other Side of the Mask’. I submitted a shorter version of it to Lethe Press’s ‘Gents: Steamy Tales of Steam’ anthology. It was rejected, so I changed it and sent it again. I also talked to the anthologist about working on an extended version of it for Lethe Press’s general submissions. I said I’d work on that extended version during July’s Camp NaNoWriMo, so here it is….it’s slightly over six sentences, so forgive me. (bows)
