After making my first submission last month, I’ve decided to start entering more competitions. Of course that means I’ll have to be writing more, but I need to do that anyway. Next up is a short story to CrazyHorse for their short fiction competition. I have until Jan 31 to submit & have no ideas! I’m hoping something will come of my attempts from the various writing prompts I work from.
Submitting my work to competitions, as well as to literary magazines, is the best way to get my work out there & (maybe, hopefully) get some feed-back. It’s easy to say that I want to be a writer, but that statement isn’t really true unless I’m doing something to make it happen.
