Radical Rethink!

It has been 89 days since I last wrote on this blog which is unforgivable and probably why I don’t have any hits.

Since I last posted I’ve gone through any number of false starts on various writing projects, finished a short story and submitted it to Analog Science Fiction and Fact (a feat in and off itself for me) but it was rejected.

At this moment in time I am no longer considering writing material for publication, merely for fun, and it feels good. I have decided to take part in a monthly competition, the details of which can be found here but the basic idea is that with a few provided prompts you write a story in a month and post it to your blog, link it to hers, and let people read it.

I’m currently around 3,700 words and about two thirds of the way through the story. I hope to get it finished by the end of the week so I can have a little time to type it up (I’m handwriting it, old-fashioned I know), edit and polish it. I will be posting it here on or around September 1, 2011 so at least I’ll not have an excuse for not posting for another three months.

See you in a few.
