I want to write short stories again. Wanna help?

This morning I opened up the two novels I have started. I’m not sure one of them can really be classified as a novel yet, more of a project. The young adult fiction novel however, definitely fits the bill as a novel. Unfortunately, I just don’t have the muse. I don’t know how to pick up where I left off back when I had all that momentum in November and pounded out sixty thousand words in two weeks.

I decided what might help jump start some creativity again is to get back to my short story challenge. For those familiar with this, you know what to do in the comments.

For those new to the blog, I enjoy writing a short story based around three objects that I get from you, the reader. I keep track of the objects and then after the deadline I set, I use a random number generator to pick the objects. I then write a thousand word or less fictional story around the objects.

If you’re curious, leave me three objects in the comments. I’m hoping this might jump start the writing again. I feel so fulfilled when I’m writing; I just need the sparks to ignite the fire. The link above will show you all the posts about the challenge.

I’m anxious to get started, so I’m gonna be really greedy and set a deadline of the end of today. If I only get one comment, you will win haha! If the world ends before that, I was never meant to be a writer anyway. 😉

Oh and I have a deadline too. I’ll set my deadline to Tuesday night. That’s when I’ll post the story, unless I finish it really fast. Thanks!

    I needed to start fresh. Maybe I’ll get back to the other ones some day.

  3. Hmmm….here are our thoughts – military, golden retriever, black flies

    LOL! sorry for the randomness, I’m watching NCIS (which is where the military part comes in) with Canyon at my feet (golden retriever) and dreading the fact I have to take the dogs out for a pee (black flies are here!) lol!
