On to 2018:
This year, I want to work more on short stories. I will be doing a Multi-Genre Short Story Challenge, hereafter referred to as MGSC(the 's' stands for "shorties"). This challenge is not official in any way, and was designed by myself, in conjunction with my editor at Collier Bluff Books, as a fun way to explore other genres.
The MGSC guidelines are fairly simple. I shall write a short story each month, from January through June of 2018, with each story being in a different genre. The deadlines for the shorties will be the 25th of each month.
You are all welcome to join in the fun. There is no prize other than bragging rights and the satisfaction of having written something this year. I shall announce the month's official genre here on this blog. Suggestions for genres or sub-genres are welcome. Leave a comment or shoot me an email.
Also new this year is me not having a day job. This may be a temporary change, but I intend to take full advantage of the time to write, and write some more. Good luck in the new year, everyone!
