Improving My Craft

30 Stories in 30 Days

I’ve been in a writing slump lately, and I’ve been struggling to kick my brain into gear. Writing is easy when you’re inspired, but learning to write when you’re not inspired can be one of the most important lessons to learn as an Early Career Writer.

With that in mind, I’ve decided to follow some advice given to me by several different authors: Spend some time writing a lot of flash fiction in a row. From what I’ve been told, flash can really help you hone your beginnings and endings, and at the very least, it will give me 30 days of solid writing without goofing around.

So that’s what I’m going to do, and I’m writing down my goal here on my blog for accountability purposes.

Over the next 30 days, I will write the drafts for 30 stories. One story per day. Every day. Weekends included. I’ll be tracking my progress on Twitter. Today is day 3, and I’m almost done with my 3rd story. Which, of course, is why I’m procrastinating by writing this blog post.

So, here we go. 30 stories in 30 days! Anyone crazy enough to join me?
