|And check out this e-book, too!|
On Friday, I posted an entry to Lily Childs' Friday Prediction. It's called "Sam Collins, P.I.B. (Paranormal-Investigator-Bastard). I'm happy with how it turned out, and the character is fun enough that he may just deserve a longer story some time.
Anyhow - with this entry, I've now thrown my work into the ring 52 weeks in a row. That's a year's worth of 100 words stories. Out of these, three became serials, one has started to become a novella, and another will likely be a book someday. From the remainder, I'd say that at least half have potential as full-length short stories.
This weekly exercise, deceptively simple in scope, has proven to be a wellspring of ideas and, indeed, there have been weeks in the past year when this is the only writing I've done.
So, all this is merely preamble to this - thank you, Lily, for hosting this challenge each week, for making it friendly and competitive, and for your insightful comments and "summaries" of the stories.
I may or may not be as regular a contributor as the next 52 weeks progress (I've finally started putting pen to paper on the book I've been putting off for months,) but it's been a crazy-fun year.
Best of luck with your blank pages, folks.
