Sometimes I have destructive impulses. You?
Often when I share my writing with others, I want to yank the work from their hands screaming a loud melodramatic No! I take it back.
This is silly, but knowing it is silly doesn’t make my stomach settle.
And still, I offer to share.
Here’s the idea. Come May I will write a short story a day. This challenge is easier with a theme, and a few months ago a theme came to mind. A month ago another theme followed.
31 days are a lot of short stories.
So, I’ve decided to do both. I’ve got notes and titles for a few stories, and depending on my constructive mood, I’ll run with whichever theme captures me that day.
Here’s where the destruction comes in.
I’m considering letting people subscribe to these short stories. Instead of posting them on a blog, I’ll let people subscribe in something of a newsletter format. But I won’t be able to rush up to you and snatch the stories from your hands.
Anyone have experience with this sort of project? Advice and ideas welcome.
