I took last week off from the blog.
I was ruminating on what it is I might like to do next year.
Actually, I’ve been pondering that for a while.
I want to do something completely different with my Free Fiction Friday posts.
So I thought to myself:
Why don’t I post one of my stories every single Friday for a year?
If you’re thinking: because that’s crazy. Well … I thought that too.
But you may have noticed I’ve been a little vague with the writing updates. That’s because I have been writing a lot of short fiction, mostly flash, or at least stories that clock in at 2,000 words or so.
Some I could (and have) sent out to various markets. But, I want to do something different, something challenging, something fun.
Thus, the (Love) Stories for 2020 project was born.
Because I think we could all use a little love, compassion, and kindness as we head into 2020.
I already have January’s stories ready to go, and February’s and March’s slotted (I’m going for challenging, not completely stress-inducing). I also have about 25 – 30 stories I can use, plus I plan on writing some more.
At year’s end, I’ll collect all the stories in a compilation and publish it in ebook and paperback.
So. Yeah. As my son might say. That’s how my 2020 is shaping up.
Wish me luck?
