  1. I finished 2023’s Bradbury 52 short stories 52 weeks challenge. Wrote 18 episodic short stories of at least 1500 words or a little more with 4 of the stories being holiday themed.

    1. Wow, that’s a lot! Did you tend to lean towards a specific genre when you were writing your short stories? Congrats on getting so much written! I’ve never tried Bradbury’s challenge; I might give that a go another year.

  2. It is a while since I posted anything – a long while. I had a novella published the night before we went into the first covid lockdown here in Oz. It is still selling and I am still receiving a royalty every six months. Enough for lollypops. I had feedback this week from a recent purchase and the reader absolutely loved the story and wants more. . I did have a short story published in an anthology but I was unhappy with the published form(grammar and spelling mistakes which were not of my making), and an acceptance of another short story which will be published in February this year. That was my writing triumph for 2023.
    The smallest child in my care will be at school this year so I am making plans and putting in the structural changes to allow me to write daily during school hours.

    1. That sounds great! It’s always wonderfully heartwarming to know that readers enjoy your work and want more of it. Here’s to hoping your scheduling pans out and you’re able to make some good headway with whatever you want to work on!
