Writing Update (Plus a Giveaway)

I recently have gotten back into the swing of doing something that makes me the happiest and fulfills me the most: writing. 
I have been writing since I was 6 years old. Writing fiction has always been a part of me. But college and then teaching has taken up too much of my time in recent years, and did not do enough writing. I wrote Aureole my senior year of high school, and while I edited and published it during college, I didn’t haven’t worked on any large writing projects for a while. 
Over the summer, I wrote many short stories. But before that, in the summer of 2012, I started planning a new novel and wrote around 8,000 words of it. For comparison, a novel is considered 50,000 words. Nowhere near a full-length novel before I hit writer’s block.
Then, around two weeks ago, I started working on it again. When I flew back from my uncle’s wedding in Charlotte, I picked up one of those $9.99 crime novels at the airport. It made me want to write again, so I read through my outline, character bios, and what I had done so far. Then I picked up my pen and wrote. 
I’ve made it through that scene that gave me writer’s block. I’m hoping to keep writing on a regular basis again, especially because I would still like to publish a book of short stories next summer. Writing makes me happy, and I would still like to make a career out of it.
