NaNoWriMo Plus

Like many writers, I am taking part in NaNoWriMo. Not only that, but I am also participating in FlashNano. To add to that, I am doing my version of the Ray Bradbury Challenge.


I am working on a collection of short stories. I wrote most of them for Coffee House Writers, but I am changing them up a bit and adding to them this time. With that said, I have most of the word county already completed.


The goal is to write 30 flash fiction stories. One a day, based on the prompt Nancy Stohlman emails you.

Ray Bradbury Challenge

Instead of writing a short story a week, I am using NaNoWriMo and FlashNano for all that. I also have to read one short story, one poem, and one essay a day. I have a book called Pushcart Prize XXV Best of the Small Presses. The book has both short stories and poems. As for essays. I am reading Is Life Too Long? by Shahar Madjar M.D.

To top that off, I am outlining for my next novel. Lucky for me, it is almost finished. I just want to rearrange and add stuff.

What are you doing for the month of November?

      1. Oh yeah! It has helped this year to try and keep my word count low for each piece. In a year previous, I tried to write longer and I couldn’t do much. As you may notice on my blog, I wrote for “Inktober” which some interpret as 50 word pieces. So it is nice to be able to write for just a bit longer. But I keep that super short mentality in mind. Having October as a warm-up may have helped. I enjoyed reading your bio and learning a bit more about you and your writing.
