Today I turned in a horror short story to try to get into an anthology. I have no idea whether the story will make the cut, but I am proud of the fact that I tried writing outside of my comfort zone. If anyone would’ve told me ten years ago that I’d write a horror story, I’d have laughed in their face. This would not have been due to the genre, but more my preconceived notions of what I thought I could and could not do. I’m proud I tried, instead of outright dismissing the idea. Makes me wonder what I’ll accomplish when I take the next leap of faith. 🙂
As an aside, I received some bad news. My next door neighbor in my hometown passed away the other day. All I can say is if any of you suffer a fall and hit your head please, please, PLEASE go to the doctor immediately. You might FEEL fine, but that doesn’t mean you ARE fine.
