...to say HOORAH! I set myself a target last month to write and sub two short stories to themed comps before 31st October. One I wrote in September and sent at the end of the month and the second I finished today and will be sending off tomorrow. I normally let a short story 'rest' for a week before I edit it and send it out but, because time is short, I had to resort to plan B. So, I wrote it tonight, then changed the font and size (to fool my brain into thinking I'm reading someone else's work) printed it out, read it aloud and edited it several times before I popped it into an envelope.
Soooooooo nice to actually achieve something on my 'to do' list. Now I can enjoy my week off feeling all self-satisfied (instead of guilty). Hoorah again.
Back on 30th October.
