Years ago, I woke up and knocked out my first and only short story. 14,880 words. I just re-read it and don't hate it. It's all plot. No meaningful character development to speak of. In other words, it has the makings of a completely forgettable movie. I'd love to sell it and buy some gear. But how to get there? Someone suggested entering it in a writing contest and seeing where it goes. But there's so many and who knows what's valid and what's a scam. Anyone have any experience with this sort of thing? Thanks.
