Weekly writing check-in: five for August

That’s right. I wrote five short stories this August, including two this past week (one flash fiction, the other a short story).

I don’t know if I’ll go all out–so much depends on what happens with my schedule. But I am participating in A Story A Day in September. I even got today’s written, although it’s more of a series of vignettes than an actual story (see above about whether or not I’m going all out).

In other words, my aim is to get some words, not necessarily a story, every single day.

So, tune in next week to see if I really did get those words (it’s like a cliffhanger). And if you’re a writer, consider signing up.

Weekly writing check-in: another short story

The Official Jo March Writing Tear Picture

I’m on a roll. I wrote another short story this week, revisiting the characters from Knight at the Royal Arms (Pulp Literature Summer 2017: Issue 15).

I’ve missed writing short stories, and I’m going to continue this trend for as long as the ideas keep coming. Also, with the school year (and dance team) about to start, they fit nicely into what is going to be a busy year.

The technical checks are done on the audio forĀ Nothing but the Ghosts. It’s making its way through the audio distribution system and is already popping up in places.

Last week, I added Ghost in the Coffee Machine to the sidebar. Click to listen to Amy’s marvelous narration.

Weekly writing check-in: photoshoot and short stories

This week, I finalized the audio for Nothing but the Ghosts. The wonderful people at Findaway Voices are doing their technical checks, and then it’s off into the world.

In writing work, I finished one short story and started on another. I have a couple of notions that I think I want to write before I dive back into a longer project.

Earlier this week, we were all over the place, the Landscape Arboretum, Lake Minnetonka, and downtown Wayzata for a senior picture photo shoot. And it’s a little hard to believe we are gearing up for senior year. I’ve already updated the calendar with dance and school activities.

It’s going to be busy.

Weekly writing check-in: tiramisu and tea

I missed last week. The audio for Nothing but the Ghosts was ready, and I spent a good chunk of the weekend listening to that. The narrator, Amy McFadden, has done such a fantastic job with the entire series that I’m pretty much speechless.

In other news, I finished a story this week that I started longhand in Iowa while working at the Java House with a little tiramisu and tea.

And I did a little background/worldbuilding work on a possible story/series. Yes, I know. That’s vague. On purpose.
