Defy the Dark Contest entry sent!

I told you a couple days ago I was working on a short story for a contest. Well, I turned it in this morning. I am attaching the link to this post if you would like to check it out. I won't know who wins until September 15. It would be really cool to win this, but at least I entered in the first place.

Here's the summary I wrote on the figment website: 
Kylie Shuler is a happy sixteen-year-old girl, but when an accident takes away her sight she must learn to live life in the dark or give in to her anger and let the darkness destroy her.

Writing at last again!

Hello Bloggers! Long time no write, well at least for me. I am sorry for disappearing on you, but I needed to focus on my life for a little bit. I took a trip home just in time to be with my sister when she had her baby. It's a baby boy, Lathan. I am so happy for my sister and her fiance. He's the cutest baby ever, if I say so myself : )

Anyway onto the writing talk: I haven't written anything in a good three months almost. There was one day where I wrote 200 words or something like that, but I didn't write for many days after that. However, I can finally say I have written over 3,000 words in three days and I finished my short story. I have five days to edit it before I must turn it in. Maybe I will post it on here later. Now I just need to start working on my novel again...Well that's all I have to say for now.

I hope you are having luck writing and finding the inspiration you need.
