I have a small problem today. I really want to take part in the StoryTime Blog Hop, and link submissions are due tomorrow.
The rules say the story has to be PG rated, which is fine except that A – I don’t have a story ready yet to submit, and B – telling my muse no graphic violence or sex is like telling her not to think about a pink elephant. She wants to be helpful, but I’m not sure if she’ll actually co-operate enough to produce a story in time. The ideas I have on the backburner are kind of borderline. They’re probably just on the safe side of being not too unsuitable in terms of actual content, but I’m not sure the concepts are something I’d be comfortable deliberately putting in front of kids.
The correct thing is probably to throw my name into the hat, and get some good practice at writing to a spec and a deadline. The right thing to do is probably to avoid committing to something I’m uncertain about delivering on and letting my friends down.
