I have a detached retina and will undergo emergency eye surgery shortly. The prognosis is excellent, but I won't be able to access my computer at all during the recover period. So don't expect to see me online for up to two weeks.
The good news is that the 2011 storysouth Million Writers Award will continue on because the judges can do their work without me. It's possible there may be a delay in releasing this year's list of notable stories, but I'll cross that bridge when I can see where I'm bloody well going!
