When I heard a spot would be open here, I silenced the little voice in my head screaming “Noooooooooo!” and volunteered — in a matter of minutes.
Normally I would have hemmed and hawed and essentially talked myself in circles until a) I had convinced myself not to bother or b) decided I really wanted it, but then found that someone else had already taken it. I’m slightly panicked writing this — but you can’t hear me hyperventilating, so it’s all good.
This is the year I become a WRITER. (and yes, there is a difference between WRITER and writer). I’ve written, but not finished. Finished, but not polished. And don’t get me started on the Calls for Subs I’ve stalked — and yet sent nothing in. I want this year to be different, I’m forcing it to be, which is all very scary stuff. But it’s time. If not now, then when?
