Post-story fidgeting

Gah, going back to read that story now, I look at it, saying to myself: “WHAT was I thinking??”

Because there’s a lot wrong with it in the details. But I have to keep in mind that I was writing it on the fly for a contest, and it got no true editing. That’s a 1-hr story and 1 read-through for typos. That’s it. If I look at it that way, it’s not so bad.

But it still is. *cringe* =)

On a separate note – have I mentioned how much I REALLY wish I could have gone to the 1st annual GayRomLit retreat? No? *sigh* 2 kids and an out-of-work husband going back to college doesn’t leave any money for such right now. One day, maybe. It’ll depends on how close it is held to me for the next few years (until hubs gets a job). Unfortunately, NOLA is likely to be the closest location for a while, I’m betting.

  1. Hey, no harm in writing a fun story, which that one clearly was (I had a quick skim). Not everything has to be a masterpiece for it to be enjoyable for the reader or writer.
