Time for something different

For a while now I’ve been thinking of changing things up.  Since my last short story that I shared I’ve been arguing with myself that in place of a short story I share a chapter.  This would let us go on the adventure together from start to finish.  It would also be interesting to see where you think it will go and where I take it.

The difficult part is that I am already writing a novel and the last thing I want is the story to suffer by taking on too much.  Having my full-time job where I work 5 days a week and am on call during off hours while adding another novel to my plate.  Creatively it would be a challenge and the two stories would have to be dramatically different, the workload would also be a challenge.  Researching, outlining, character profiles, and the writing.

Or do I take one of the short stories I have already written and expand on it?

The next creative post will be on June 4th.  This gives me time to work on concept and decide if I continue with short stories or do I go all in and take us on an adventure?

One June 4th, we will get that answer.

The Almighty Schedule

I figure if I make one of these I might actually stick with it. Plus, getting my procrastinating ass off the couch and away from video games might help as well. So below is the plan I have created for posting to my blog. You wont have to wait long for my first post.

Short Stories will be posted every Friday. They will vary in length but this should give me enough time to write and edit. Especially now that I have written about 20 short stories this should allow enough time to keep up.

Poetry will be once or twice a month. Yes, I know it’s shorter than a story but I find poetry writing an emotional experience. At least for me it is and it takes me a bit longer to get these poems out than a short story. It also takes more will power to share.

Opinion is not something I’m huge on sharing. Probably because I’m not here to create waves, I’m just here to share my stories with those who may be interested in reading them, or buying them, or hell offering me a contract. So don’t expect at lot if any of these. I’m more of a creative writer and my non-fiction writing tends to go in to my journals.

So this is the plan, let’s see how long it takes for me to say @#$# it and play video games.
