It seems I have neglected the blog for a month but I haven’t been idle. I’ve set some writing goals. And I realize I need to make some changes–to this website, to the stories I’m publishing etc. Try new things and all that.
My main goal this month is rewriting the Snarktales. Yes, even the two I’ve published. Everything gets a new look. I’m excited about this and hopefully I’ll finish by the end of the month.
I’ve also been participating in Story a Day May. The name is self explanatory. You don’t technically have to write a new story each day, but can set whatever goal you choose. I decided to try a new story every day though. What I’ve discovered is that, unless I plan microfiction–a Twitter fiction series, a drabble, or anything under a page or two–I generally can’t finish the story. But at least I’m writing super short fiction, finding new plots, and having fun. And I haven’t missed writing something daily all month!
I have one other project going. I asked three friends to proofread the Cinderella Snarktale back in February. As a thank you, I’m creating a piece of artwork for each of them–characters from their own fiction. This is a ton of fun. Have been scouring Deviant Art for free stock and reference photos, and creating inspirational Pinterest boards (which said friends can pin too, of course). Right now, I’ve just got some quick pencil sketches down.
And that’s about it! The changes to the published stories and this blog will, hopefully, take place next month. 🙂
