Neil just reminded me that the deadline for the annual Canada Writes short story project is approaching once again. I'm relatively happy with how last year's entry turned out, but of course it wasn't good enough to attract the attention of the judges. I'm not sure what I'll write about this time, but I think I'll try something a little more mainstream and less generic ("generic" in the sense of "based on a genre").
Something about beavers, perhaps...beavers and maple leaves and Mounties...oh, I know - something about the theft of the strategic maple syrup reserve, and the Mounties and beavers who track down the thieves. Perfect.
