November 28th update

Since my last post
I have read the following
             I Finished my first collection of short stories. I have begun my second collection of short stories. This time I’m reading a collection of ghost stories complied by Audrey Niffengger.

I have worked on the following
            I’ve revised some Gwen and Brooke stories. Thanksgiving’s story was posted early last week.  The Christmas story will be posted shortly.
I’m working on the following

            I got behind on NaNoWriMo but I’m trying to catch up. It’s really a futile effort at this point but I never like to give up.

Thoughts: It's hard to believe i've had this blog for just over a year.

November 18th update

I have read the following

Absolutely loved the stories in here.  The poetry was great, I especially liked The Two-Ton American Man.  There was a good mix of different types of horror without being gruesome just for the sake of being gruesome.  I enjoyed the variety of styles, and look forward to reading more from Midnight Circus.

I’m working on the following
I am still working on reading a short story a day.  I am on track after playing catch up.  I have read 33/76 stories. I’m wondering if my math was wrong but if it was I know January first I can get back on track. 

I have been assigned to read two screenplays by January first.  I will pick at least one of the screenplays to read over the weekend.

I am working on NaNoWriMo but am behind.

I still need to revise the November Gwen and Brooke so that it is on Fiction Press before Thanksgiving.

November 10th

I have read the following
             I am currently working through Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and still reading The Galaxy Game.

            I just finished my first collection of short stories as I work on reading a short story a day.  

I submitted to this competition and didn't get selected.  I chose this book to be the first collection i read on my journey to read a short story a day.  I was amazed at how good some of the stories were and questioned why some of them beat mine.  I'm not saying I'm perfect but i spent a lot of time questioning how short stories that didn't have a protagonist change or a story arch made top twenty-five out of over three thousand. 

I have worked on the following
            I practiced narration with less dialogue.  This is still a skill I need to practice.
I’m working on the following
            I am working on NaNoWriMo.

            I am putting the finishing touches on November and December Adventures of Gwen and Brooke which will be posted on Fictionpress.
