It’s been a while since I wrote short stories, but for Story A Day May this year, I managed to bang out thirty-one pieces, most of which were godawful or fragmentary at best. “Spin,” the one I wrote for Visual Verse, is definitely one of the top shelf shorts. Read it here.

I really enjoyed working with this month’s Visual Verse challenge. You can read the story I created from it, “The Mate” here.
Continuing my W1S1 challenge, I have been submitting pretty regularly to the great Visual Verse Anthology and have just had my sixth submission published on their site! For anyone else doing their own W1S1 challenge, I highly recommend giving Visual Verse a try. It’s a great way to give yourself a boost in the face of rejection. Read my story here.
I have, admittedly, been lax about posting lately. This is in large part due to the fact that my beta reader critiques have come in and I am in the process of doing the fastest revision of my novel I’ve ever done, in an effort to be done for Pitch Wars. Pitch Wars is a fantastic contest where you send in a sample chapter and query letter to four mentors and can possibly be picked to get your (completed) manuscript shined up and submitted to agents. The application is open from August 3rd to 5th.
Anyway, I have, of course, been juggling my W1S1 challenge during this as well. To give myself an easy win last week (because sometimes we all need one) I did this month’s Visual Verse. My story ‘One Step, Two Step‘ is now up!
And now back to the grindstone.
