I posted that I was going to pull my thumb out and just get down to writing.
Fortunately, unlike my other New Year-type resolutions, this one has stuck. I’ve gone through Duotrope and found a number of places to submit to, I’ve submitted to Angry Robot’s window and so far I’ve written two shorts and will be writing another in the next couple of days.
I’ve also managed to find some friends (hey, let me finish before you start laughing), who also write and who have also said that they will give my writing a good going over and provide the feedback that I need. Naturally this a mutual agreement, which means that I not only get to sharpen my writing skills, but also my editing skills.
Hopefully this will work out, with all of us getting the success that we want, whilst having a great time doing it.
