I enjoyed writing something for the OCT flash fiction comp. And inordinately, exceedingly happy and surprised to get a vote for it too!
I didn't vote tho. Time poor - and what a lot of reading to do. I'll probs have more time in December so will try to vote then.
I'm heading out of town on a secondment to the back of beyond for 5 weeks shortly, so will not be able to take part in the Nov comp.

- to help get my head back into the sci-fi/fantasy world so I can generate enough energy and momentum to charge into writing a sequel
- give me a reason to procrastinate so I don't need to face into writing a sequel.
Life is complicated.
