Insecure Writer's Support Group time again. It's whizzed round so fast that I've been caught out feeling pretty OK about my writing at the moment.
For a start I've got to grips with the new laptop much more quickly than I'd expected, so I'm writing instead of fretting about the things I can't make it do or looking for lost files.
Secondly, if you were to pop down the newsagent's (in the UK) you could pick up three different magazines with my stories in.
Thirdly the post hasn't come with today's rejects yet.
Fourthly I've not put myself under the pressure of doing NaNo this year. I'm doing my own less challenging challenge.
Fifthly (which doesn't feel like a real word although if firstly and secondly are then it should be) I can get men to take off their shirts just because I tell them it'll help sell one of my short stories.
As I was so rubbish on the insecurities front the least I can do is to find you a couple of free to enter competitions.
Here's a poetry one (I'll enter it and won't win, if that's any consolation)
And here's a short story one.
