So the application period has opened.
I'm trying to decide which stories to submit, and putting out positive energy that there is a spot open for me next summer.
I almost feel that if I get into the workshop next year, that nothing else I ever do will equal that level of excitement. I've been putting off applying for years, but now I feel is the time to do it. Stop worrying if I'm good enough. All I can do is write the stories that I know how to tell, stories that can only come through me and no one else. Plus I owe it to Octavia Butler since she is the one who told me about the program. Twice.
So now I need to read and re-read, and pick the best work I have right now.
