Gotta Go Dark…

I had hoped to avoid this, but I guess you can’t fight City Hall, can you?

Writerly Wednesday: A No-Go Contest, Alligators, and Another Contest

Where in the world did the month of March go?!? Is it just me or is 2012 starting off a bit too fast for you? So, today’s a bit more of a mid-month check-up here on Muse, Rant, Rave. For starters, I held a Playlist Plotting contest on the blog last week, complete with a special guest judge, Lisa Gail Green of Paranormal Point of View, but unfortunately, there were no entries. *insert sad face* But no worries!
