Mini-post #6: Progress

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!

  1. Amy, that is a good point to remember...52 stories under your belt! Wow, that will be great...having 12 is impressive I think.
    Thanks for the reminder that even though I didn't join the challenge, I don't have to beat myself up when I haven't had the time to polish up what I've written...there will be a time for that.
