You’re Invited to Join Us

I’ve cooked up a bunch of stories and now I’m inviting my friends and strangers to share them. If you go to The Labyrinth Asylum, you’ll find 31 stories written over 31 days. They’re filled typos and the awkward sentences that happen when thrown together in one day.

Now I’m not sure what happens next. Agents don’t like short story collections. I don’t know enough literary magazines. Was the month spend well? Hard for me to say. But you’re still invited to read and think what you like.

P.S. I could use help editing these stories if anyone is up for it. I’ve got no money, but I’ve got art & gratitude. Perhaps I could design a holiday card or some such thing for you. Let me know. Thank you.

  1. I’m looking forward to seeing what you cooked up. Yes, the month was spent well. If nothing else, you have the discipline to sit and write everyday, to force yourself to take butt-in-chair time. That’s big, Marta; it’s a good thing and I’m sure it’s not the only good thing. Maybe time will show you more of them as it rolls past.

    Happy Memorial Day. πŸ™‚

  2. What Darc said!

    Writing a story every day does indeed require discipline, so now you’ve proven that you have it – not only to the rest of the world, but yourself too. πŸ™‚ Don’t know if you needed that, what with NaNo and all, but there it is.

    I’m going to bookmark your site so I can check it out and read through a little at a time. πŸ™‚

    And congratulations for making through the end of the month!

    • Well, I don’t know if I’ve proven anything to the rest of the world since I don’t think the rest of the world is listening. But I do feel better when I follow through on something.

      Thanks for reading, Darcs.

  3. I’ve been keeping my peace about this because I don’t want to, y’know, bang the drum too insistently. Although (as you say in your comment to Falc, above) maybe the world isn’t exactly listening to my drumbeat, either. πŸ™‚

    But what to do with the stories — I don’t think that will be much of a problem. (Of course, all things are relative!)

    Once I’m back into a rhythm with my own writing, I have an idea about the editing of the Asylum, too.

    Just out of curiosity, why drop the Fairy Tale in the title in favor of Labyrinth? For consistency with your other stuff?
