I just sent off my entry to the Geist 10th Annual Literal Literary Postcard Story Contest. I workshopped the entry with my writers’ group twice, and I’m actually quite pleased with how it turned out. The deadline was originally February 1st, so our group added an extra meeting to give us a chance to whip our pieces into shape in time. When I was checking formatting rules and submission guidelines today, though, the deadline had magically changed to February 28th. So if you’re interested in entering, there’s still time. It’s open to international submissions, as well, not just Canadian content.
I wanted to get my story in before the original deadline, though. Partly because I’m just paranoid that way, and partly because that’s what I had planned and I don’t deal well with last-minute changes. I may, however, think about putting together a second entry just for the fun of it. Because right now starting something new seems preferable to banging my head against the brick wall that is the story I’m SUPPOSED to be working on.
