1) Because of this (for anyone who hasn´t seen it):
Hydra Competition for Brazilian Literature
I´ll also be one of the judges, meaning I´ll have hundreds of stories to read (not the worst problem in the world :).
2) Because I need to get some serious work done on my dissertation.
3) For the Clarion Write-a-Thon.
It´s going to be a busy couple of months, but hopefully very productive ones!
