Title: None Word Count: Not sure, as I wrote by hand today, but probably around 400 words Genre: Flash fiction Total Time: 30 minutes Comments: Another uninspired day, but at least I got words down. Looking forward to having unlimited time on the weekend to write.
Title: Untitled Genre: Flash fiction Word Count: 156 words Total Time: 10 minutes Comments: I wrote this piece for another one of Chuck Wendig’s flash fiction challenges, but I’m not sure it’s going to get posted.

Title: My Best Friend Word Count: Not sure. I typed this by hand. I’m going to guess around 500. Total Time: 40 minutes Genre: Mainstream Comments: Still struggling to get words out this week.

I’m going to say 3 hours, but it was 3 hours laced with distractions. Obviously. Because I canContinue reading “Story-A-Day Report: Day 2”
Story Title: None Word Count: 5,300 Total Time: 6 hours, 15 minutes (though I imagine it might have been a little less, as that whole presidential announcement proved to be quite a distraction). Genre: Personal alternate history Comments: It has a beginning, middle, and end, but it’s not complete. There are brackets where sections needContinue reading “Story a Day Report for May 1st”

I’m looking forward to doing Story-A-Day again this year (and hopefully, not getting so far behind 3/4 of the way through that I almost give up). I already have more than enough prompts to get me through the month, too. I currently have 43 ideas, titles, or other inspirational notes to keep me going. SoContinue reading “One Week Until Story-A-Day!”
