WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT…
Being a smart sort of chick-a-doodle, and having been in a writing slump for more months than I could remember, I did a quick internet search for a writing challenge. The Ray Bradbury Challenge was the one that came up and the one I clicked on.
SO WHAT DO YOU DO:
There are two stages to this.
- Read a short story, an essay and a poem every day for 1000 days
- Write a short story every week for a year.
THE CAVEATS I ADDED:
- Do not think about quality. This is about quantity, and churning out stories so that I am outside of my comfort zone and improving every time.
- Fictional podcasts count as stories, factual podcasts count as essays and poems. (I like listening to stuff as I paint. I may as well absorb as much as I can while I can)
