This Week’s Project

This week I’m writing a short story I started five years ago.  I’ve always liked the ideas in the story, but since I don’t write short stories, I’ve never bothered to finish it.

I think I’ve finally put some method to the short story madness.  I spent the first few months of this year learning new things, strengthening things I’d long been weak at.  I learned new skills, so now is the time for practice.  It’s easiest for me to practice on projects I don’t care about, so I’m knocking down a couple short stories before I go back to the larger revision.  At least the short stories allow for quick practice.  Then it will be back to novels.
