December 1st my manuscript must be sent off! Ack! Eeek! Panic! Actually it’s mostly prepared thanks to Uncle Gerard’s kind help… and no thanks to the 3 people I asked who either didn’t get back to me after agreeing to do so or got back saying they were renaging their agreement to help. OK I know, life interferes and teachers are busy people. I appreciate their willingess to help in any case. The story is called Singing Quieter, and if you’re interested you can read it all *here*.
