Doing "it"

To motivate myself, I've decided to enter Touch into the Some Like It Hot contest.

Since the beginning is definitely not the hottest part of the story, I can't say I have high hopes to make it far; however, the chance to get critted by EC editors and authors is too good to pass up!

Update: So, I questioned a couple of things about this contest, and it seems that the story has to be completed, or almost completed. Touch has about 2-3k of work to do still, which isn't much in the grand scheme of things, but as slow as I am at writing, that may not get done until next year!

I plan on taking Saturday, November 6th, to write, so we'll see how much I get done!
