Feeling a bit better today. I still haven’t hear about the writing contest. Hopefully today.
Did you read Neil Gaiman’s blog today? There was a bit there about how he wrote a short story and worried about what his parents would feel about it:
When I woke, there was an email from the editor in London saying she’d accepted it. I was thrilled and then I panicked — what if my parents thought it was libellous? I sent it to my Dad, and got a message back saying he thought it was funny.
I just thought it was interesting that even somebody of Neil’s stature has these thoughts. I wrote story a bit ago that used something my Dad says in a funny way. Before submitting it, I made sure I told him about it and that he was okay with it. He was, of course.
So, how about a poll.
