A little bit about me . . .
I'm one of the more recent additions to The Phoenix Writers, having joined in March of this year. I am working my way through the first draft of my novel, "Let Sleeping Gods Lie" as well as writing short stories, flash fiction pieces and regular posts over at my blog, Kelly's Eye
He shoots . . . he scores . . . GOAL!!
Well, that's the idea anyway. I am yet to submit any of my work for competition or publication, so having spent a long time producing flash fiction and multiple short story drafts, the time has come to declare some of my work 'finished' and to send it out in to the world. So, the question is . . .
What's the plan?
Long Term Goals
To complete the first draft of my novel by January 2014
To win a short story or flash fiction competition within the the next 6 months
Short Term Goals -
To submit 2 short stories for competition by the end of September.
To submit at least 3 pieces of flash fiction for competition by the end of September.
A simple confidence trick
It's an oft-repeated truth that as writers, artists and human beings, the greatest obstacle to our success is the voice of self-doubt.
I think that the more work I submit, the more my confidence will grow and the more my writing will continue to develop. It's great to be part of a group of writers that encourage and motivate each other to greater success. I look forward to keeping you all up to date with my progress.
See you in September!
