Oh, look at that. I’m doing the challenge again this year! I managed it once in 2012, but not 2013, but I really liked the result that first time, and I’m hoping to have the stories from that go-around published before the event.
If you weren’t around for it, I posted a piece of short fiction every day, each around (or slightly less than) 2,000 words, with a theme and characters that started with the day’s letter. It was a challenge, but fun, and the longer it went, the easier it got.
Last year I attempted to write a novella in 26 parts, but it didn’t happen. I did end up with a great story idea, though, and I’ll be screwing around with that later.
But this year, I think I’m back to short stories. I need to work on the theme a bit, but I’ve got time.
The really nice part of this challenge is that we’re encouraged to work ahead, so in theory I could have all 26 shorts done before April even started. Wish me luck!
