Day 26: Short Story Marathon


Finally hit the end of  “Woody and June vs. the Ex.” At 10,000 words it was a blast to write, but a streak buster for sure. Fun was more important here than the streak. With the four of these I’ve written (one last month while I was training for this) I’m up over 30,000 words. A few more and episodes and there’s a novel. That, though, ought to be the last one for the challenge, but we’ll see. They are the most fun I’ve had writing in a while (and writing is usually fun, so that’s saying something).

Read it Aleia and she enjoyed it. While too long for this challenge it’s a great addition to the series.

Feed back from Dean on #10 ” Fake Jake” and #11 “With Light Years Between Us.” Both are a thumbs up, and that’ll put a smile on a tired face!

Busy day otherwise, back to shorter stories tomorrow.

Strategies Employed:  More fun with Woody and June.

Lessons Learned: Fun trumps the streak. And, dude, mellow out, there will be more streaks.
