>This is an official pat on the back to myself. I did it!!
What, you ask? I submitted a story for the book Shiny Blue You. I procrastinated, forgot about it, remembered, realized the deadline was May 15th on….wait for it….May 15th. I wrote, I revised, it wasn’t perfect – but I submitted it anyway. And regardless what happens – whether my story is selected or not – I am very, very proud of myself.
