Wow, has a lot been going on in my virtual life (regular life pretty regular, which is good!)
I’ve joined another online writers group (in addition to Liberty Hall), LiveJournal, and Google+ . More on all of these in a later post.
Still writing flash stories every weekend at Liberty Hall – getting close to my goal of a flash a week for a full year. I have been in all but one challenge since August 23, 2010. (I’m very impressed with myself.)
Currently have three things out – yay me! It is still SO difficult for me to press the submit button. I keep tweaking and polishing, then setting a piece aside, only to pick it up for tweaking a few weeks later. Of course, many of my pieces are the Liberty Hall flash ones that really do need work – it isn’t possible to create a publishable story in 90 minutes, which is all the time we get.
I’m working on a short story for a setting contest – another participant gave me a very interesting setting. And the story should NOT be a flash. So this is good.
I’ve also picked up my unfinished YA novel, which now I see is really geared to much younger kids. I dinked around with it a bit, thinking that perhaps it might be fixable – we’ll see. I plan to enter part of it in the next Liberty Hall short story challenge.
