Ah, November. The longest and shortest month... As far as seasonal changes go, the weather seems to settle in for a hearty change, and you're either stuck in rain, snow, or heat for days on end... yet that can suddenly change. Or maybe that's just my neck of the woods, world, whatever? The holidays are also coming but aren't here yet, but in a second they will be and you won't be prepared! Sometimes I feel like I'm endlessly chasing some goal or dream, wondering if I will ever get there, much like the character in @CarlHoliday story, Dreams Can Come True. Have you read it? Why not give it a try this month if you're in need of a break?

Length: 18,007

Description: An unhappy dragon receives the unlikeliest of gifts and wishes the impossible dream. A powerful sorcerer wants more trouble than he needs, encounters a dragon, finds he’s stronger than he thought, and comes up with a solution to a couple of tricky problems. To complete the mix, we’ll throw in the shortest knight in the kingdom who desires to go on a quest for fame and fortune.

Hey, thanks @Cia for choosing Dreams Can Come True for this month's Signature Feature. I've certainly been ignoring Gay Authors for the past couple years, including not participating in the 20th Anniversary Story Festival. I'd like to allocate some time to write a short story, novella, or something longer, but I'm presently too busy with other projects.

@CarlHoliday  I do hope that you will find a little time in the future to continue writing.  I don't care how long it is, I know I will enjoy it!

My biggest challenge to submitting a short or long story to Gay Authors is that I'm working very hard at trying to once again get a novel published in the legitimate literary market. It's a takeoff on my story here titled "A Very Schticky Thing To Do." It occurs in the future from that story. It's about a Schtickist high school senior who is very unschticky, and is hired to be the Formal Companion to the local Viscount Bongos.

I understand.  I do wish you success in your endeavor.  Now I have to read "A Very Schticky Thing To Do." 😊
