Aloha, I have a story I wrote for you which is six pages, double spaced. Just wondering if the word count is as strict as twitter! I guess I could put the poor thing on a diet, but that would mean some hungry days ahead until submission for the poor thing. Let me know if I must begin restricting food and water!! Anticipating your Halloween story ruling with fear and nervous anticipation, Frightfully yours, Esteban
