Chuck and I think that it's time that you, yes you, stopped dilly-dallying about becoming the type of person who submits horror fiction in national contests. Sure, it's summer. Sure, the terror of Halloween is a long way off. Sure, you have sooo much to do. But there's such a thing as good planning, and it's time now for your prospicient side to collude with your dark, creative side and sit down and compose a horror short fiction story.
