Short Stories, Shorter Skirts

I went on KVUE today to talk about the Chronicle’s annual Short Story Contest. One of my pearls of wisdom? Have a trusted friend read your story before you submit it. Wish I’d had a trusted friend tell me that skirt was going to look really, really short on TV.

Postmark deadline is this Thursday, Dec. 15. More rules and regs can be found here.
