10 days until the Star's short story contest entries are due and I haven't started mine yet. I think I've been procrastinating for a few reasons:
1 – I'm not sure that my style of writing is something they would publish in the Sunday paper, let alone award the prize to
2- I'm chicken.
The thing is I know I will feel guilty if I don't at least make an attempt at writing something (even if it is half-assed). So, basically this leaves me with one week to write and edit the entire story, while also hand-delivering it, since I have left it to the very last minute.
