30 Day Shorts I

We’re on day three of my 30 Day Shorts challenge, so it felt like a good place to check in and see how it’s gone so far.

Day 1
I started a little piece, which ended up being an unseen scene from my current serial work. I ended up not using the day’s prompt. Title is still out on it.

Day 2 
What started as a ten-minute flash piece morphed into a longer piece connected to a longer story (not my current big project). It also let me take a look at some minor characters and some background relations. Currently I have it titled as ‘Children’.

Day 3
Started another exploration titled ‘Bloom’. It’s focused back on my serial, but also clears up some things about a character who’s been giving me development troubles. I ended up not using the day’s prompt.

How are you doing on the 30 Day Shorts challenge?

As a reminder I have both Aurarin’s Song and Crimson and Gold available for free on the 4th. Aurarin’s Song will remain free until April 6th. I also have all of my available and posted short stories on my short stories page.

March Recap

March hasn’t been an easy month, especially in the last couple of weeks. With the worldwide pandemic, stress has been at an all time high. I hope all of you are safe and sound at home.

On the writing front, it’s been a good month. I opted to work on some shorter-form stories and ended up making several of them into a serial set of stories. I’m not sure what I’ll do with them beyond this point because they were a ton of fun to write, but are a little long to post here and I’m not sure of anywhere that accepts serials at the moment. If you have an idea, let me know!

Because of that, my word count came in over sixty-five thousand. I still have a couple of days to add in on my tracker.

With April approaching, I’m looking forward to working on some new things, and I have a 30 Day Short challenge I’m undertaking. You can find out more on that here. Also coming up in April, I have both Aurarin’s Song and Crimson and Gold free for a few days! Crimson and Gold will only be free for April 4th, whereas Aurarin’s Song will be free from the 4th until the 6th. Both are also available through Kindle Unlimited currently as well.

How was your March? What are you looking forward to for April?
