They are also looking for another administrator.
I'd be a rubbish administrator, but I'm sure they will find someone great to fill the position.
I'm trying to work on a story for the anthology because I think it is good to challenge oneself. I usually write for adults, so I'm finding it quite a challenge indeed. I drive a lot and find it difficult to get through a day without cussing--it tends to bleed into my writing! ;-)
Anyone who thinks writing for children is easier than writing for adults is wrong and also incorrect. Of course, maybe the fact that my brain works upside down, backwards, sideways, anyway but the right way around, probably accounts for some of that.
