Yup. Things got a little rowdy here at Chez KC what with it being Fiscal New Year’s Eve last night, and ‘sampling’ a new shipment of Saurian Brandy, and, well, I got carried away. So carried away that I lost all sense of judgement and proportion and decided that…
Well, I have two friends. (Honestly.) One of them, June Faramore, started a 365 poems-a-year blog called Work Your Way Out, which I recommend. (She claims I inspired her to do that, but I don’t believe her… that’s all her.) A few months later, my other friend Charlotte Cuevas was inspired by that blog to put up her own 365 poem blog, The 365 Poetry Project. This blog is also wondrifulous and awesome. So, I’ve decided to follow their example. But of course, I couldn’t do the same thing that they’re doing. That would be, among other things, sensible and responsible.
Nope, I’m writing 50 stories over the course of the next year.
I was originally going to write 52, but I thought that giving myself two weeks of flex would be a good plan. And to show I mean this, I’m putting up a short-short as a sort of “Week Zero” post. Anyway, I write well (read: I only write) under pressure, so come along for the ride and we’ll see how this goes.
The page is here. Wish me luck.
One thought on “The Fifty Story Tower of Fiction, or, The Amount of Disregard I Have For My Sanity”
I’m pretty sure you have more than two friends, I’ve seen your facebook. 🙂
Also, yes, you are insane. But pressure can be motivating, is why NaNo works so well for me each year. Good luck on your venture, and if you need me to yell at you to write, let me know. 🙂
