Hey here’s a first for me: a good friend of mine convinced me to submit an idea to an anthology. I normally do not submit to “theme” issues or anthologies or any other writing venues in which I am limited to certain subject matter. I don’t write well under that kind of pressure (at least wrt my essay or creative writing).
But–why not? It’s time to expand my writing horizons. As in most of my writing ventures, I begin with, “What the heck, right? Why not?”
