I have no problem writing all the time. But submitting is a whole other story. I feel bad but clearly not that bad.
The thought of submitting seems so daunting. I need to break it down into smaller steps. I should start somewhere.
For me, the act of starting anything tends to be the hardest part more often than not. Once I start however, I find that the work isn’t so bad.
I’m not sure how I managed to submit stuff in the past. The first time was about six years ago. I entered a contest just for fun. Little did I know I’d end up being published.
Last year I submitted a story right before exam season. As you can see, I had my priorities straight. It worked out because I got the story published and didn’t fail any of my exams.
Unfortunately, there aren’t any negative consequences if I don’t submit. I have a lot to gain, but nothing to lose. Perhaps I should create my own consequences for being a lazy potato.
I like to think I’ll figure things out. I’m still learning, and I have more to learn.
At the very least, I know what I want to accomplish. Now I just have to get to work.
