52 in 52 : Story #2 – Night Lights (Whistling in the Dark’verse)

By | January 20, 2017

‘Write a short story every week. It’s not possible to write 52 bad short stories in a row.’ – Ray Bradbury

I’ve joined the madness over on the NaNoWriMo thread and going to try and write 52 short stories (or Flash Fiction) in 2017. I’m aiming for flash fiction of roughly five thousand words or less and I want to use this as a way to learn how to outline via MuseFic.

This post contains the Outline (MuseFic), Rough Draft, Editing (MuseFic), but no Final Draft.

If you want to read them as a daily post, check out the story on Wattpad! 🙂

Half Past Never 3/?? (Tales of the Drunken Unicorn)

By | August 23, 2016

This is the semi-weekly posting of my Camp NaNoWriMo July 2016 NaNoWriMo ‘Novel’ in which I and my Fictives attempt to polish off all of the in-progress stories in the Tales of the Drunken Unicorn ‘verse!

So there will be snark and world-building and lots of spoilers and the process of rebuilding the short stories and flash fiction from the bones of the former corpses.

Blue writing is from old drafts of stories. Green writing is new drafts of stories. Black text is just the MuseFic.
