I totally get it. I also rarely have the courage to press SEND, although when I did it it’s sometimes been printed. Always with a pen name. And I’ve survived rejections, so why am I still so scared of it?
I sent in two submissions for the contest last year, but they were both not winners. Re-reading them now, I think I can do better.
I’m going to try to fix up some of my half-finished ideas and send in more than one submission this year. Maybe it’ll be selected, and maybe it won’t, but I will have some good quality fiction writing time, for better or for worse.
