My Write-a-thon Goals
I’m going to take part in the Write-a-thon’s flash fiction critique groups this year. (Why don’t you join me?)
I love flash fiction, and have published quite a bit of it.
For this year’s write-a-thon, I’m going to commit to writing six inter-connected pieces of flash with:
1) an inclusive cast
2) feels and/or banter
3) an upbeat tone
all set in… I don’t know. A single organization? A single world? A single time-space continuum? A single even stranger place, like Miami?
Those six interconnected flash fiction pieces will be my weekend projects!
I’m also working on revising a novel, and will be dedicating one hour per day to that during the week for the duration of the challenge.
I might create a piece of interactive fiction, or a longer short story in the world of the flash fiction pieces too, if I’m feeling good about my revision process.
For this year’s write-a-thon, I’d love to raise $50.
To sweeten the pot, I’ll match donated funds up to that total amount with a donation of equal value to the Carl Brandon society.
Anyone who donates at the $5 or more level will get a DRM-free ebook version of the stories I write during the Write-a-thon delivered to your email address once I get the final sponsorship report in your choice of ebook format. (That’s six flash stories + the longer story if I write it.)
