I'm delighted by how well my side project - A Story A Fortnight - is going. The deadline to get the first fortnight's story in was 8pm on Tuesday and 90% of the group submitted a story!
I even submitted a story.
Admittedly I didn't finish it until right at the last minute (I wrote the beginning on the train to my parent's place on Saturday) but no change there. I really should change my name to Last Minute Lil (it would make a nice change from Calistro ;o)).
Anyway, so far the group's working a dream. We're all scoring and commenting and it's a wonderful, energetic, supportive and useful place to be. The second set of prompts have been posted and I'm really looking forward to writing a story to someone else's prompts (writing a story to my own prompts was an interesting exercise!). I really, really hope we keep the enthusiasm and energy going. If I can write a story a fortnight (even if it's at the last minute!) that'll be 26 brand new stories in a year that I can sub and, hopefully, sell (some of them anyway).
I wrote a bit more of novel #2 on the train on Saturday too but haven't typed it up so can't update the word counter just yet.
So while the blog has been quite quiet of late I've been writing and that has to be a good thing right?
