So… I did contact a local paper about writing for them. And they wrote back to me, saying, yes, we’d love for you to submit something, and these are the formats and lengths to which you can submit.
Presently packing my pants now as to whether,
a) I have the balls
b) I have something to say
c) I have a brain in my head that will allow me to put those two things into a publishable article, letter, feature (!) or the like.
How can it be that the terror strikes afresh?
In other news, there’s a short story competition that I want to enter, but I have to write something new first. I do have a vague idea for a story. The deadline is 31st May, as is the deadline for the local paper.
Time to get cracking. And whip that terror into a corner too…
