Viable Paradise!

You have four weeks to prepare and submit your submission for Viable Paradise

My primary post about Viable Paradise is here, and the post includes links to posts from some of my VPXV classmates, and their posts include links to more.

Still wondering if you're "good enough" to even bother applying?  I played that wondering game for many years.  But here's the truth: the piece of writing I submitted last year to VP was written many years ago.  My insecurities (and, frankly, the youthful belief there would always be "next year") rejected me, preventing VP from ever getting the chance.

Don't do what I did.  Don't press the hold button on your writing development because you feel more comfortable wondering than risking. 

Questions? Ask 'em here or email 'em my way.

One year ago today, I mailed my Viable Paradise submission, knowing that I'd never get in, but that I'd done the biggest thing I'd ever done in my writing "career".

I did get in, though, and I can honestly say it was the biggest thing I've ever done in my writing career.

It's the one year anniversary of telling the world you believe in yourself. ;-)

That's pretty cool. And I am SO glad you were there, and we've kept in touch.
