Weekly writing check-in: pumpkin spice and flash fiction

Okay, not really. I’m not even sure if I’ve had a pumpkin spice latte.

But!

I love pumpkin scones, and bread, and muffins, and pie … and… and.

You get the idea.

This week, I wrote two complete flash stories and started a third.

I’ve also been contemplating 2020 and what I might do, writing-wise.

2019 wasn’t my best year for productivity. I’m mulling on that, starting small (see above about the flash fiction stories), and I have some plans for what I might do.

And that’s all I’m going to say at this point. Yeah, I know, vague-blogging. But the other thing I’ve come to realize this year is I’m not one of those writers who can talk projects while working on them.

Weekly writing check-in: another short this week

Quick check-in today. Got another short story written this week, and now I’m tired. (But not because I wrote a short story; possibly, though, the laundry is making me tired.)

So I’m calling it a night and a very short check-in. More next week.

Weekly writing check-in: more cover practice

More low stakes practice this week. This tutorial was on thriller covers (I think that’s fairly obvious, but just in case …).

This isn’t a real book. Callie Robb isn’t a real author (that I know of–Callie, if you’re out there and would like these covers, let me know). A Cressview Thriller isn’t a thing (again, that I know of). But it’s more fun than going with author name and fake series name.

In writing news, I worked on an exercise and a bit on the Coffee and Ghosts story. And … that’s it for this week.

Weekly writing check-in: quick check in

Just a quick check-in today. It was a busy week; I didn’t get a ton of writing done, but I started work on a Coffee and Ghosts story, so there’s that.

And it’s October, which means I get to post about ghosts, and coffee, and all things Halloween all month long.

So, if you’re in the mood for something a little bit spooky (but not too spooky), you can always listen to the first episode for free.
