Last month I was complaining to an artist friend of mine about how I was having difficulty coming up with content for my blog. I told him that if I was an artist, I'd do what he's doing and make a list of characters and sketch a post every day.
My friend then verbally slapped me around for a bit and suggested that I write a story, in short installments, and post an installment a day.
And so that's what I'm doing.
I'm writing my version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
But here's the thing. I have no idea where I am going with this story. I write up an installment each day and try to build on what I've written previously, but I really have no idea where this thing is going.
My only goals are to post an installment each weekday, and that each installment has to be a minimum of 100 words. I'm not doing so great on the every weekday thing, but the minimum word count hasn't been an issue . . . yet.
I'm now fourteen parts and 3,600 or so words in.
And hey, I'd like to invite you all to take a look at it if you got the time.
