My activities

andarab-planning

Alright, a quick post today to give you all a feel for what I’ve been up to. Nothing Earth shattering or crazy, just some steady work helping out a friend. Basically I’ve been doing piecework- coming up with many wildly varying scenarios all within an overriding theme.

It’s been fun because I’ve been revisiting a lot of places I’ve been over the years, setting stories within those locales and inventing both male and female characters, situations. So far I’ve done half-dozen odd of them, it’s been a kick.

I try to limit the stories to a given word count, to distill the message within.

In my novels my chapter lengths usually fell around two to three thousand words. For short stories or vignettes this is too long- you need something short but sweet to grab the readers attention, to string them through the ride.

The desired effect is the elusive “can’t be put down” feature of a good read.

Whether that’s true about this patchwork of stories, I don’t know. If they see the light of day remains to be seen. If so, I’ll be sure to put it out to you all in the form of a link or whatever.

So far though, I’ve been fairly satisfied with what’s been saved to my laptop.

Heading into winter, this means progress.
