Weekly writing check-in: stepping outside your comfort zone

I have a guest blog post over at Nunum this week:

Use Flash Fiction to Step Outside your Comfort Zone (and step up your craft in the process)

In other news, I started writing the new series this week (and by “started” I mean I’m not sure I’ve even hit 1,000 words yet).

My current mood is neatly summed up by the picture to the left. I always feel this way when I start a story, whether it’s a five-hundred-word flash fiction piece or a 50,000-word novel.

But if it feels new and untested, if I’m–you know–stepping outside my comfort zone, maybe that’s a good thing.

At least, I hope it is.

In which I reach for humiliation

I’m over at The Long and the Short of It review site today, in the Young Adult/Middle Grade section as the guest blogger. My topic?

Forget the Stars, Reach for the Humiliation

Which would make an awesome title for a memoir. For now, it’s the title of a blog post. Click through to read if you’re so inclined.
