This is day 18 of the StoryADay in May challenge and I’m already behind with my goal of 31 stories. There were a few days I had difficulty formulating ideas to write due to brain fog. Not sure if the fog was related with work stress, a strange cold, or allergies. But after getting some rest, the ideas started to reveal themselves and now I have several story starters to expand on.
Most of the works are in extreme rough draft form, but there are a couple I plan to rewrite and get critiqued through Scribophile . (Information about this critique site will be posted later.) Then maybe I’ll try to submit the stories somewhere or self-publish them.
Due to lack of time, I’m attempting to write drabbles, which are very short works of fiction. There’s a bit of a learning curve with drabbles, but the new skill is an interesting challenge to try .
Need a reason to get excited about writing again? You should check out StoryADay and join the fun.
This is a 140 character story that I posted on Twitter. The size of the story idea came from a StoryADay prompt .
Tongya’s heart sped. Trapped. Big eye. Hot light burned her wings. She chanted ancient words. Glass shattered. A giant screamed and ran away.
