Off to Gen Con

I’m off to Gen Con tomorrow. In addition to the usual packing and planning (and ironing, ugh), I’ve got a short story to revise. I keep being frustrated that it takes me “too long” to go from idea to submittable story. So I picked an appealing anthology with a fast-approaching deadline and wrote a story. I’m aiming for their minimum wordcount…

I mentioned to the rest of the group on Sunday that writing is where I learned to be disciplined, that I could learn things that seemed difficult at first, to persevere when I wanted something. If I hadn’t stumbled into writing, I wonder if I would have learned those lessons. Or where I would have learned them instead.
