Back to normal soon
You may have noticed that I have not posted in nearly a week, despite having originally promised a review on Tuesday. This is due to a few unforeseen circumstances on the day in question, followed by some entirely foreseen circumstances over the rest of the week (which is why I said it would be Tuesday, funnily enough). The review is still not written, but it ought to be done…uh, some point soon. Next week will be a lot less busy, so expect things to go back to normal before long 🙂
Anyway, in lieu of a proper update today I thought I’d share this lovely article, which I came across several days ago. Essentially, it argues that aspiring novelists should consider using short stories as a mean to practice their craft. This got me thinking; it’s been a while since I last tried to write a short story, and the only one I’ve ever really been proud of is the one that I’m now using as the basis for my novel. This novel has been the sole focus of my creative writing time as of late, but I’m now wondering if it might not be worth lowering my wordcount goal for it in order to write something else on the side. Finishing some shorts would certainly be a heck of a buzz, but I’m not really sure if this would be the best way to use my writing time right now. If anyone has tried something like this, I’d be keen to hear your views.
