Been doing flashes for three months now; I did three weeks directly to Breathless Press Blog before kicking my personal blog off on November 15, 2012. The first one I posted to Breathless Press Blog was on October 21, 2012.
I am seeing an improvement in my writing under the constant push to have stuff ready for the Sunday and Wednesday deadlines.
By the way in order to keep up on the Wednesday stuff, I have written a little ahead. (Can’t do it for Sunday because I never know what the picture will be.) The pool of flashes does create problems every Wednesday when I have to choose from one of several babies to let people see. I guess that is like trying to figure out what story to send to a publisher.
It’s time for me to start thinking about the next regular challenge, which I think will be writing a flirt. A story of about 10,000 words. You can find several of these on Amazon, running from 99 cents to about $1.79 each. I guess I should make a goal of a flirt a month. Yes, I think that would be a good goal for my self-created self-directed creative writing course.
I will release details when I get one ready as an e-book on Amazon. Now to figure out three to do – one each for Feb, Mar & Apr.
(Update 5/20/2016 – Well the flirt thing did not work out well three years ago. I hope with my present push to get all things writing organized I can change this up in the near future. Not three flirts a year, but at least one publication of some sort. We will see what happens.)
