Most of us can read the writing on the wall; we just assume it's addressed to someone else.
The clock is ticking--the winners of the Amber Heat Wave contest will be announced in a few days. The wait has been interesting; I've gone back and forth between hope and doubt. I found a Q&A with Trace Edward Zaber, who owns Amber Quill Press, and he indicated that there are fewer winning entries this year than in years past. That's interesting, since there were many more entries this year.
Winners will be announced March 1. If I win, I will spend a lot of time celebrating. :) If not, then I get to order the consolation prize I picked out several weeks ago.
I went out to lunch yesterday with a group of coworkers. A good friend of mine was sitting across from me at the table, and I told her that I was waiting to hear the results of the contest. I realized that half the table was listening, so I explained that I had written a short story.
One person asked, "What's it about?" I said, "Love" at the same time my friend said, "Sex." It was a pretty funny moment.
So, if you wanted to know what Office Relations is about, it's love . . . and sex.
