So, the first month of this new year, I have been busting my comfort zone on more than one level. From cessation of excess planning time to drawing and even completing writing projects for submission to competition, I am stepping outside my comfort zone.
Talk about going the full mile! The submission was on time, in proper format and prepared, but with some errors because I was in a deadly rewrite cycle that wasn’t accomplishing anything.
This year if I just make six submissions to contests, or publications it will be a successful year. I hate doing that. My preference would be to just want to write, self publish and flood the web.
However, maybe there are things to learn from this year of submissions that will help me be a better writer. It might help me grow more quickly in the areas that seem to be stagnating. It’s work a try and the loss will be a few dollars entry fees.
