Today I did something I’ve never done before: I wrote fiction with the intention of showing it to other people.
If you already do that and think, “Oh, yeah. Big deal.” IT IS! I haven’t done this before. I write write and over-write. Yes, I can write, as long as I have complete control over the facts. I realized that I can have far more control over facts I make up, so I’m taking a big dive.
Thanks to a couple of friends for pointing out a contest with a deadline. Without a deadline, I surely would have put this off for years. Seriously, years. I’ll do it when I’m ready but I’m never ready years.
Let me take a deep breath and hit submit for the contest, then I’ll share the story.
