I'm celebrating my twelfth story from A Story A Week today.
Twelve weeks. That leaves only forty stories still to write.
If this endeavor can be compared to a marathon, I'm feeling the first burn right now. I'm starting to wonder if this was a good idea. It's a big commitment. I'm spending more time writing short stories than I am novels. I have a bunch of short stories I'd like to polish, but I don't have time. Creatively, I'm drained.
But then I remind myself -- after this year there will be time to polish. And I'll have 52 stories under my belt. And hopefully I'll be a better writer than when I started.
It's that last point especially that keeps me going.
Stay tuned for this week's short story ... coming right up!
