I'm Back with a Quick Deadline Call for Submissions for Veterans and their Families
If you've been wondering where I've been for the past two months, I'm still around, although I haven't been spending a lot of time on social media this winter.
Earlier this year, after scrubbing my kitchen and bathroom floors, I was so out of breath I had to sit down and rest. Around the same time, my Internet service provider "upgraded" their system and threw my program speed and capability for a loop.
Frustrated with not being able to easily do what I used to do both physically and on line, I took some action.
I joined a local fitness center and began a nutrition and exercise program, and my husband figured out what was wrong with my laptop.
Now that I have more energy and my computer is behaving itself, I hope to blog more often.
I wanted to begin with this call for submissions because it's for such a good cause and there is no fee to enter.
Here are some details:
For all military personnel, Veterans, and their families:
Call for Submissions for Proud to Be: Writing by American Warriors volume 4
Deadline: June 1, 2015
Categories: Short fiction, Poetry, Interview with a Warrior, Essay, Photography
