This is something I was thinking about when I was reading through Vanessa Matthews’ blog last month. What should I do with my short stories when May is over?
Monthly Archives: April 2012
So, onto post two of three… and it’s only a couple of days before May, guys! Are you all as excited as I am?
Anyway, I’m thinking this post won’t be as long as the last one. (Hopefully!) There’s a really good blog post on the story a day site about how to develop story ideas, plus throughout May there’s going to be a prompt provided every day (as far as I’m aware, anyway).
However, I know some of us like to find our own prompts, and I happen to have a boat-load of links to lists just hanging around on my hard drive, so I thought I’d share a few of these.
I don’t really remember how I came across this site, but it was probably through twitter, as most websites I find nowadays are. Either way, I found it and thought ‘well, this seems like a good idea’ and as soon as I could sign up, I did.
Thing is, I don’t really write short fiction.
Helllllllllooooooooooo everyone! Welcome to my lovely little Story a Day blog, where I’m planning on documenting my progress on the upcoming challenge.
I have two reasons for starting this blog: the first, obviously, to keep track of what I’m doing (and to share it with people who want to read about it), but also to see if I can keep up a blog this consistently — because right now, I suck at keeping anything updated. If I can update this blog every day for the duration of the challenge, then that’s a win. If I complete a story every day for the duration of the challenge, then that’s also a win.
If I do both?
Ahem. Anyway, that’s what this is going to be about. I’m going to spend the next few days before the challenge begins collecting some prompts and generally planning for the month ahead.
Wish me luck!
