About

I have a goal: I want to write a novel.

I have a problem: My recent entry in a fiction contest was completely shot down and I feel like I don’t enjoy writing like I used to.

My attempt at a solution: This is going to be my online project. I plan to challenge myself to write a piece of flash fiction every day (Monday through Friday) to see if I can drum up some stories that I’d actually like to turn into a full fledged novel worthy of publishing. Normally I spend my days using my journalism skills to write about worthwhile things, while still desiring to write good books that might impact others. I hope to use this blog as a platform to practice my writing and hold myself accountable, using my rules to help me enjoy the process once again. On the weekends, I plan to reflect on what I’ve written, see what I think makes a good story, and find out where I can strengthen my writing. And at some point, I plan to select one of these pieces of flash fiction and try to develop it into a longer piece of writing. We’ll see how this goes…
