Ok I’m changing my rules on the short story challenge haha! A week deadline isn’t challenging enough for me as I noticed after I set to work. An idea formulated and a story came storming out. I surpassed the word limit though, so the hardest part is trimming it down. I’m giving myself until Sunday to post it. I think it’ll be fun, at least for me if I do this again, to have the topics picked by a Friday and have the story up on the blog by Sunday. Much more challenging. I’m just glad an idea came to me. I wasn’t sure, with how blocked I’ve been, but I figured a short story not related to the novel would be a good break. The goldfish bowl became the muse and I like what I’ve got. Now to trim it, arrrg! Hehehe!
Even if no one else finds this interesting, it’s helping me a lot. There have been so many thoughts gurgling about in my head that narrowing them down to a blog post has been impossible. It’s been a tough week for our country and my town, to say the least. Writing helps me so much. So bear with me as I travel through my creativity induced happy stupor. 🙂
