My New Year’s resolution this year is a little unconventional.
Instead of giving up a habit, I’m starting one.
I’m taking up gambling!
Not just in the conventional sense of placing a bet or doing the lottery every week, although I will be trying a few of those things out too, but more in the sense of having a little more faith in my work and putting myself out there.
Taking more risks.
So I’m going to start entering more of my work into competitions and film festivals.
You may remember a few years ago I wrote a short story called Hide and Seek, in fact a few of you were kind enough to give me feedback on it; thank you.
Well after sitting on it for nearly two years, trying to decide whether to develop it into a screenplay and exactly what that would entail, I’ve finally decided to enter it into a short story competition.
I know it’s a long shot, but, that’s kind of what this resolution is all about.
