100/100 Update #2 – Why am I doing this?

I have had a few people ask me why I am trying to write 100 short stories in 100 days, especially over the holidays.

I have a few reasons, so here they are, in no particular order:

  1. I am crazy.
  2. I wanted to see if I could do it.
  3. Why not?
  4. I wanted to practice my short story writing.
  5. I wanted to get more stories out on the market (to magazines.)
  6. I want to force myself to work on short stories and books at the same time. I am trying to be a full-time writer here. If I’m not actually writing full-time, then what the heck else am I doing?
  7. I am crazy.
  8. I have a mentor who is just as crazy as I am, so he encourages the madness.
  9. I love writing (and reading) short stories, so here we are.
  10. When I thought to start the project, there were exactly 100 days left of the year, so it seemed like a good number.
  11. Even if I fail, I have written a ton of short stories and have them out to magazines. (This is called failing to success.)
  12. I am crazy. (Did I say that already?)

So yeah, there ya go. 😉
