As Q&A during Ali’s presentation took us to the end of the most recent meeting of the Northwest Association of Book Publishers, we handed out a fun homework assignment: write a story in no more than 36 words and prompted by “I wrote my book because…” Congratulations to Paul Gerhards for his winning piece! He will receive a free copy of Ink-Filled Page Red Anthology and The Self-Publishing Manual.
I held the mug under the spigot poking out of the bladder-filled box. What would happen if I sloshed wine into the cup? It would not be the day I stopped drinking. I didn’t. It was.
