Wrote a Short Story Today :)

After being preoccupied for a week by random stuff, I'm back on the right track!  Further, I managed a story in  a day.  Lately short stories have taken me a few days and sometimes more than a week.  Then, they don't often end up as short as I want them to be.

I really want to make August better, since my birthday is early September and I'll be 29 :(

So I want to get two more short stories written, finish the burgeoning novella and get a little farther in the main WIP ( two chapters? please?)

But, knowing me, I'll get 1 short story written, the novella will hangout, untouched, and I'll get farther in the manuscript draft than I intended.  There always seems to be a trade off.

I took a break reading (still working on the book I started almost a month ago *sobs*) but I've read two chapters in the last day :) So I hope that I'll be able to post my response to it soon.

I have to admit, I haven't been keeping up with news or watching anything worth sharing or discussing--just a ton of anime.  And Stewart and Colbert randomly --hey, I need to laugh!

Still, I'd say this is doing better, and now it's just about keeping up the momentum.


  1. well hello there, I'm visiting from IWSG. Or, I'm a IWSG want-to-be, or a was-been.

    I write non-fiction. some of it is funny. some of it is sad. but most of the sad stuff is inspirational because I typically don't write about it until I've climbed out of the hole.... except for the cancer stuff. I wrote that from day one.

    currently, I'm in "happy mode" so... its a good time to stop by, no pressure :)

  2. Congratulations on joining ISWG!

    As far as August goes, as long as you keep writing, it doesn't matter which project you work on. I'm interested in seeing how Don-Yin comes out. Seems like a well developed world.

  3. Welcome to IWSG. The support from this group will help. I look forward to the first Wednesday of the month now. :)

    IWSG #179 (At least until Alex culls the list again. :P)
