Weekly writing check-in: Impressive job!

So, this may be my favorite sp@m comment yet:

Keep functioning, impressive job!

In fact, I think a variation sums up 2020 fairly well.

Still functioning? Impressive job!

In actual writing news, I’m working on that very last story for the 2020 project. I finally figured out that it’s a Diamonds and Toads retelling, which is one of those fairy tales I keep coming back to. I find it unfair. I believe it’s more of a curse to have diamonds and gems fall from your mouth than toads and vipers. (Really, vipers could come in handy, especially in 2020.)

But it’s a modern retelling, so no actual toads or diamonds are making an appearance (so far). If you want actual diamonds (and some toads), there’s always An Army of Toads in my fairy tale compilation, Straying from the Path.

Next week, I hope to report that this story and the 2020 project are complete.

    Straying from the Path is a wonder-filled collection with just the right amount of surprises and “REALLY?” places! I look forward to more. I’ve been saving your free stories in a file to read when I get a chance!

  2. Thanks, Marge. I’m hoping that maybe in 2021 I’ll get back to the longer fairy tales. I have a series I want to write.
