Over at Kristine’s blog, she’s going to start posting, chapter by chapter, a novel she wrote years ago–the work that inspired her into writing as a career. Check out her “My Big Friday Thing” blog entry.
Continuing the Friday theme, I plan retake up posting continued portions of a mystery story (featuring a more traditional pair of characters who will probably never change that much, thank gods there will be less angst), progressing by 500 words every Friday (although after the experience of TGTD, that will probably be upped to 1000). I call it “Flash Friday” even though this isn’t really flash fiction.
Pete’s also mentioned being tempted to do his own posting of previous works (though whether he’ll give in is a question yet undecided).
So my question: how about a Friday thing? It doesn’t have to be long or new; just a little something to post on a Friday.
I have ulterior motives here: I want to keep the TGTD connection going. It’s been one of the best experiences I’ve ever had with respect to writing–in fact, I’ve found it more difficult to go on ever since more and more of TGTD has died down due to either extreme concentration or life interrupting. My connection to some of TGTD participants helps out a lot. Writing is such a lonely biz.
So what do you guys think?
