7/29/2017 Finished The Odd Pizza Place at 4 k. I had to go back and revise 50 words out to meet length, but not too bad. I did a tie-in with my familiar characters, but expanded my world out a little. Could be the start of a new novel. I love this POV character’s voice, sort of noir intellectual with some irony. It’s a nice change from my usual goof-fest, with adult characters and set in a grungy city somewhere in the Northwest.
Looking forward to getting back to novel writing, but this was fun. Great practice and a learning experience! Thanks for the motivation!
I was out front of the pizza place, on break. Yeah, we were open, even though morning on Sunday’s not prime pizza time. Reasons for that I’ll get to.
|What I Write||
I write YA fantasy that is both epic and paranormal–but also humorous and quirky.
I also write spec fic short stories, including scifi, fantasy, and horror.
I won second place for adult fiction in Tidepools 2006, and I’ve also been published in Jeopardy webzine.
Write six complete short stories–one each week–of 3 – 4 k, no longer.
I struggle with restraining the length of my writing, although I can definitely finish stories. But keeping the length down will be quite a challenge for me! I look forward to improving this skill.
I am happy to raise whatever I can. This is my first attempt to participate!
