I just wanted to bang out this short post to tell all my interweb friends to have a happy, wonderful holiday season. I’ve been holding off on posts while I figured out what sort of internet presence I’d like to have and I’ve got a few New Year ideas in mind.
Once the holidays end, I’m planning a five-week interactive short story which will happen here and will also post on my facebook page for others to read. I’m thinking of something like the literary version of improv comedy; I’ll start off with an opening paragraph and readers can comment with verbs and nouns that hint towards where they’d like to see the story go or try to back me into a writing corner by giving me the worst possible scenario they can think of. I will not be able to argue, back out or whine, and the first five or so responders’ noun and verb must be included in my next installment. The story will continue for five installments, and end, hopefully, with some sort of satisfying finale.
The second thing I have on the agenda is a mega-flash fiction drive on my twitter page where I will post 120-character fiction at least once a week. Anyone can play along, just RT your own story.
So, that’s what I have planned for the future. But, for right now, I’m going to go bake like June Cleaver on crank and enjoy my house, my kitties and my man–and then later enjoy my family, friends and my yearly trek to Florida. So, look for the fun to start the second week of January.
Until then, be healthy, well, and happy, my friends!
