June sped by. Still moving in and still trying to get myself in a routine that allows me to get to back to doing all the stuff I had been doing before.
I am behind on short stories. Barely 60 stories at the end of June. But hey, that’s the minimum I could be and still potentially make my 120 short story goal. The bigger issue for me is that a couple of those stories felt like they could become novels and I want to write those novels. So that makes the shorts harder.
I’m still going to power through some more shorts for the next week, maybe two. Then we’ll see where I am as far as wanting to do more or take some time to write longer fiction.
I got back a gothic novel from the editor and I hope to have that up by the end of summer, with any luck! It’s off getting some pull quotes from someone more well-known in the genre. Go me! That was a hard ask.
At any rate, for those who also read the newsletter, those short stories only for newsletter subscribers (oh you didn’t know? Subscribe here.) will be coming back soon. Hopefully, August.
I hope everyone is having a great summer and enjoys their reading.
