The short story I wrote got posted to the Long and Short of It website today, I was really excited. I had some shocked family and friends, but they were all real supportive. My choice of topic to write about is a little hard for some to understand, but at least I didn't get any hate mail, or at least not yet.
For me, getting a short story posted on that website was a pretty big deal. It said not just my husband and sister liked it. Now granted I don't think The Luck of the Irish is the best thing I've ever read, but when writing a story with a word limit you cant really develop the characters the way you want to. That being said for my first writing project to be put on a website for others to read was a big deal to me. It gives me hope.
Right now I'm working on a longer story that I would classify as a sweet and funny love story. I'm big fan of the contemporary genre, so I write more towards that angle. I'm actually working on three writing projects right now. The question is still there will I ever get published? I don't know, I hope, but even if i don't writing is a good outlet for me.
