The October/November comment contest winner is: David Sanchez.  Congratulations, David!

When I asked David what inspires him to write, he said, “I’ve been reading as long as I can remember, everything from newspapers, magazines, and ketchup packets. Things I read or hear – be it a random quote in a news article or a lyric in a song – are often a trigger for the stories I develop.”  Sounds good to me!  I’m going to have start paying more attention to ketchup packets, David.  Fascinating!
