In September, IWSG announced that they would be having an anthology contest for group members. We have until November 1 to submit a short story about a parallel universe or alternative history. This is my insecurity this month. As soon as I saw the contest, I was so excited about it, but now I’m having mixed feelings/second thoughts. I really want to submit a story, I have an idea, I have the characters lined up, and I even started writing. I am just not sure if I can pull this all together in a sensible way by November! During this process, I realized that I have not written any fiction since high school, beyond a list of ideas and a couple opening paragraphs to stories that may never come to be. I don’t even know if my fiction will be likeable, but I guess this is an opportunity to find out. I have to start somewhere. I hope I can get it done.
