My Big Idea.
How many caught my latest Flash Fiction yesterday? It wasn’t a Friday but it made for a good intro for today’s post. *wink, wink* Recently I mentioned that I had a big idea for the New Year that I would share at a later date. Well, today is the later date! *Cartwheel*
So, just what is this big idea, you ask? Well, it’s actually rather simple…
My goal for 2018 is to submit at least 1 Flash Fiction piece to a contest or for publication every month of the year!
Okay, it may not sound like much to you but for me this is big. Like, big big. See, I’ve had these grand ideas in the past to submit more often than I do, but then I’ve gotten waylaid and the whole plan has gone to the side.
This is why I’m posting this here–for all your lovely eyes to see–so that I can be held accountable. *gulp* Yeah, it’s a little scary that I totally might fail and will miss submitting for a month (or six.) But my writing won’t get published unless I’m submitting. And nothing compares to a nice slice of humble pie if I fail, amiright? I figure I’m more likely to submit if I know you all are watching. And waiting!
Here’s to swallowing some pride and getting some writing done for 2018!
Feel free to check in and ask me how things are going. I’d love the accountability and promise I won’t get miffed with you for asking. *insert cheesy grin*
That is all, my friends. I hope you’re having a productive and peace-filled week before Christmas!
