A writing blog where I discuss moving on to my April short story and announce the title of my April story. The title makes me think of my childhood but the story definitely isn’t about my childhood. … More Putting the extra children’s story aside and starting the April story.
My short story inspired by my puppy is done but I’m still technically writing for March. Since I finished the monthly goal I’m actually working on another children’s short story. … More Freckle Face is DONE
Inspiration comes from everywhere. For me it does, anyway. And in this case it came in the form of a freckle on my adorable cocker spaniel puppy, Selby (@selbysweetie on Instagram). … More Inspired by a freckle
I did it! Over 6,000 words later and 9 days past deadline but I did it!!! The February short story is finally done. It was a different genre (ghost story) than I’ve done before so that made it challenging and all the more rewarding! … More February Story- Finally Done!
I plan on posting an ALL DONE post later today for my February story. I just have to tie up a few loose ends. So expect an excited report from me soon. … More Progress Report: Almost Done
Since I’m not actually posting the stories here I suppose I could lie and say I finished my February story and you would never know. But I would know and I don’t want to be Pinocchio 🤥 on this blog. So here’s where I admit I haven’t yet finished my February story. … More Oops- Didn’t quite finish
I’m way behind on my monthly story (especially considering tomorrow is the last day of the month). Binge-watching the Olympics (and following Olympians on Social Media) and a bad headache haven’t helped me focus. However, it’s only February and I don’t plan on abandoning my goal of a year of monthly short stories after just one month. … More Procrastinating because of the Olympics
I suppose it’s apropos that it’s nearing Valentine’s Day and I’m craving something. For the first time in years I’m actually craving the characters in the story I’m writing and not chocolate. Oh who am I kidding. I’m always craving chocolate. 🍫 … More Craving Characters
Here’s the announcement of my February short story. The working title is “A Haunted Ranch.” As you can probably guess, it’s a ghost 👻 story, which is a new genre for me to write. I’m not really into the spooky and scary, but I feel I have to write this story because it came to me practically fully formed in a dream. Or was I haunted by it? 😆 … More February Story: A Haunted Ranch (working title)
I did it! A little more under the wire than I wanted but I finished my January short story and my first story in this self-imposed monthly short story project. Cue music (that we’ve already established I can’t hear, but cue it anyway)! (Snoopy, you can start your happy dance now.) … More Finish Line Crossed: I finished my January short story!
