The Huffington Post: Short Stories: ‘The Paris Review’ Creates a Great New Compilation
I love writing and reading short stories. Check out the interview and new book about the art of writing a short story.
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
I have no idea what I’ll be reading next. I have a massive amount of books on my TBR list so I’ll see what I’ll read next after I finish my current one.
Ahem. I’m am pleased to announce that you are looking at another National Novel Writing Month winner!
*pops open a bottle of champagne*
I have officially completed the 50,000 word goal, and it only took me 28 days!
While I am excited beyond no end, especially since it was my first year competing and I won (YAY!), I am still not done with my novel. Correction: I am way, WAY NOT done with my novel.
Let’s see. I have exactly 50,000 words and have just started chapter 6. There are to be 12 chapters, so…I have…6 more chapters to go and probably another 50K words to write. There is still a long writing road ahead of me to finish this damn thing!
But that’s OK. That’s OK because I chose a story that is interesting to me and one that I want to keep on writing. I will not give up, and definitely not let myself lose motivation. Just because NaNo is over, does not mean my inspiration and writing schedule is over. No, no, no. I can do this, and I will finish it!
However, for the rest of the night (it’s 9pm here in Spain) I shall be celebrating!
