I’m trying something new. When I was writing draft one of Life at the Death House, I found it really helpful to draw the chapter I was to write from a jar. I liked the spontaneity in that process.
My goal is to write a short story a week while also working on other novel ideas. I have been writing “prompts” on pieces of paper and entering them into my idea jar. I’ve also taken to asking anyone who comes over to visit to write a prompt down and stuff it in the jar, so I won’t always be encountering a prompt that I wrote.
The goal is to write 52 short stories in 2017 by writing at least one short story per week. Let’s see how close I can get to that.
If you have any writing prompts in mind that you’d like to challenge me with, send them over or comment on this post. I’ll add them to the jar.
