My Big Idea.

How many caught my latest Flash Fiction yesterday? It wasn’t a Friday but it made for a good intro for today’s post. *wink, wink* Recently I mentioned that I had a big idea for the New Year that I would share at a later date. Well, today is the later date! *Cartwheel*

So, just what is this big idea, you ask? Well, it’s actually rather simple…

My goal for 2018 is to submit at least 1 Flash Fiction piece to a contest or for publication every month of the year! 

Okay, it may not sound like much to you but for me this is big. Like, big big. See, I’ve had these grand ideas in the past to submit more often than I do, but then I’ve gotten waylaid and the whole plan has gone to the side.

Enter, YOU!

This is why I’m posting this here–for all your lovely eyes to see–so that I can be held accountable. *gulp* Yeah, it’s a little scary that I totally might fail and will miss submitting for a month (or six.) But my writing won’t get published unless I’m submitting. And nothing compares to a nice slice of humble pie if I fail, amiright? I figure I’m more likely to submit if I know you all are watching. And waiting!

Here’s to swallowing some pride and getting some writing done for 2018! 

Feel free to check in and ask me how things are going. I’d love the accountability and promise I won’t get miffed with you for asking. *insert cheesy grin*

That is all, my friends. I hope you’re having a productive and peace-filled week before Christmas!

Here is a picture of my kitty in reindeer ears to make you smile. Did it work?

    The kitty definitely made me smile. So did the Battle of the Tree. I have had several cats, so yes, I know this battle is a very real thing.
    By the way, you should submit the flash piece referring to the Titanic. I think it was called Bad Luck or something similar. It was very striking the way you did the ending. I still think of it, which is kind of amazing for me because my latest reading tends to make me forget earlier things.
    Merry Christmas

    • Merry Christmas, Sharon! ☺️🎄 Thanks for the suggestion! I’ll have to review my pieces and think on which ones I might submit. Maybe I’ll take a poll on Facebook. 😉
