Check Back Next Week!

I’ve been busy editing this week, because the 24th is only 8 days away! If you don’t remember, I announced last month that I would be putting out a short story on the 24th of June.  That story is titled The King, The Advisor & The Peasant. 

This short story is 6 pages long, and will be available for free. It’s also dedicated to one of my patreon supporters.

The King, The Advisor & The Peasant is a humorous story, following a peasant through an audience with a King who may or may not be a donkey. It’s also my first attempt at satire.

Thanks, as always, for reading!  And don’t forget to check out my Patreon! All of my stories come out to Patreon supporters first.

March Goals

I’ve been trying to write this post for the past few days and it just hasn’t been going very well. I’ve had one goal in the back of my head, but I was trying to wait till I had more. But now it’s March 5th and you know what one goal for the month is just fine.

Finish short story Miracle and edit it for publication.

I mentioned in my last post that Grant and I have been writing flash fiction stories for the past month or so. My last story started out at 600 words before I realized that I wanted to make into a much larger story.  Thus Miracle was born.

The short story is about a young boy named Miracle and his abusive family, and his eventual escape from them.  The idea so far, is leaning towards the absurdist fiction genre, much like my story And So The Stairs Went Up (which you can still download for free on payhip).

So my goal is to write, edit and get this story ready for publication. I will be posting updates on how I’m doing on Patreon, so please consider supporting me if you’re interested in hearing about the story or receiving an early copy of it.

 

End of February Wrap-Up

I just now realized today was March 1st. I had another post all ready and waiting to be posted when it struck me that I should be writing a wrap-up post instead. *sigh* I’m really not sure where my brain has been these last few days.  But anyway, here’s what I was up to last month!

Reading: I made it to 51 books last month. Which puts me 19 books ahead of my overall goal, but actually 8 books behind what I was hoping to be at by now. Also apparently I forgot to write a goals post for last month…

I read 24 books in February.

Writing: February was a pretty great month for writing. I worked on a lot of different things so here’s the short version.

  •  Personal Writing: This month Grant and I worked on writing one flash fiction story a week, the total ended up being over 3000 words and one of the stories I hope to be publishing soon.   The story is called Miracle and I’m really excited to share it with you all.
  • Magazine: I started my own magazine last month! We’ve already had a few submissions, but we’d love to have more. The deadline for the first episode is coming soon! So please check out the website.
  • Internship: I was also editing for my Patchwork Press internship.  I worked with an up and coming author, her book will hopefully be coming out soon! So stay tuned for more updates on that.

I worked on this story for a little over a month, and was in love with it from the very beginning. It’s a story of questions and the meaning of a life stuck in repetitive actions.

I really enjoy the style of And So The Stairs Went Up and I hope you do too.
