I think I’ve pretty much decided to do a book of short stories for NANO this year. I’ve been debating it and decided it sounded more plausible. I will try to write one short story a day so I end up with 30 for the book. There are enough things going on around me that I think would make good short stories so topics will be easy enough.
Was trying to figure out a theme because one has to have a theme for a short stories book. Have decided to come up with a sentence and then every short story has to have that sentence in it somewhere. I’m going to (surprise, surprise) make it a book on scary stories in honor of Halloween (plus I like writing scary stories so that worked out well).
If all goes well, maybe I’ll write a few more – one in honor of Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and a children’s one in honor of my son’s birthday. I’m feeling the bees rumbling with excitement in my stomach so think the idea is pretty solid. I already have several story ideas lined up for the Halloween one. 🙂
I love to write!!! Oh, if any of you are on Fanstory.com – please vote for my horror contest short story entry starting on 10/2. 🙂
