I recently had someone tell me that they were bummed because they kept missing my Free Fiction Fridays.
I have a secret to tell you…
If you subscribe to my blog via email (sign-ups are on the blog in the sidebar and in the footer) you will get new posts emailed to you every time a new one goes up. You can discard the posts you don’t want to read, and you will get an email copy of my Free Fiction Friday every week to read at your leisure. The emails don’t go away unless you delete them. So you don’t have to wedge time in every week if you want to keep up with my stories.
I just ask that you please abide by my copyright and don’t share or copy the stories. Thanks a bunch.
As some of you may know, I have been working on writing 100 short stories in 100 days. It is a challenge that is a little crazy, but for someone who has a full-time writer’s schedule, it is totally doable.
I went through the last eight days of September and most of October without saying much about it. Mostly just to see if I would keep up with it or not. So far, so good.
I promised a few people I would blog a little bit about it through November. So maybe I will do Saturday updates or something.
Here are the covers I made for the short stories from September 23-30, the last 8 days of September was the first week of the last 100 days of the year.
Most of the stories are out for submission right now, so nothing is currently slated for indie pub at this point. I’ll post them when they go live.
But so far so good on the challenge. I am submitting all stories to magazines and making covers for them all as I go. Just to add to the workload. 😉
I was keeping a lid on this at first, just to see if I had a shot at actually accomplishing this at all.
But I am in the middle of a super-crazy challenge. On September 23rd, I realized that there were exactly 100 days left of the year. So I got the nutty idea of writing a short story every day for the rest of the year. That would be 100 short stories in 100 days (and still trying to keep up with my books.)
As of today, I have hit 29 days/stories without missing. So I decided that it was time to go public with it. I may blog about it a little bit through the month of November, depending on how things go. I am submitting all of the stories to magazines and creating a cover for each of them. I may share some covers here in the future as well.
So here’s to another month of writing short stories! Anyone else doing any crazy creative challenges?
