A Call for Guest Posts + Short Story Writing

I feel like I've been neglecting the blog as of late. When I said earlier this year that I felt like I was running out of things to blog about, it wasn't entirely a joke.

So, I'm calling on my creative friends to consider coming on and writing a guest post. :-) I love learning about new things and reading different experiences, so hit me up!

I'm not doing NaNoWriMo this year. I've been writing a short story which is bound for a collection a writing friend is putting together. I recently read through the publishing contract for said collection--my first publishing contract, y'all!

I feel like it's taken me ages to draft this story, but then again, short stories aren't my usual medium and my first drafts are usually on the shitty side, so I'm trying not to be down on myself. I'm very nearly done with my draft and then I plan to ask my usual writing and critique buddies to take a look before I submit in early December.

I was watching TV earlier today and had an idea that'll make the story a lot more interesting. And last night, I saw a flash of a scene that I can end with.

I know the story will end when I can see the ending somehow.

  1. I wonder if I'll run out of things to say sometimes, but I can talk about the same things over and over again. Of course people may not read it anymore, but I'll keep talking to myself. ^_^

    I need to check my mailbox. I probably have that contract and my contacts freezing to death in there. I just wrote a poem, and I still agonized a few weeks over that. >.<

    1. I feel like a poem would've a lot easier. But now I have this idea to do a short story collection for NaNo next year--I have ideas that I don't want to spend more than a few months with lol

  2. I'd love to guest post...I think I owe you one anyway! And your contract is in the mail! Sorry for the delay--the post office is in the most obnoxious part of town and I try to wait until I have three other reasons to visit said part of town prior to going ;-)

    1. I think we said November or December, right?

      I'll get the contract when I get it :-)
