I have the opportunity to rewrite something for an anthology; it's due on Halloween.
Last year, I wrote what I thought was a decent story. The editors apparently liked it and we got about two-thirds through the editing process when my ego couldn't stand it any more and I withdrew.
The knock came at my door just this morning.
Now I have to decide if I want to try it again.
Is my ego stronger?
Are my skills better?
Have I learned anything?
Yep. I have and I will try it again. They bought it once; they'll probably buy it again.
Oh - I found a place that will take one of my favorite stories and post it. Humor. Who knew it was back in vogue?
