Changing Gears

So far, I’ve been posting things that I’ve enjoyed writing, and been engaged on them, and enjoyed that too. Then there have been the short story ideas.

I’m happy to come up with short story ideas, and I see some things that I want to write. But I’m not enjoying posting them. I was hoping that having that as a challenge topic would give me more inspiration to come up with more ideas, but what it’s been has been a cop-out. A way to have a post that I’ve already written and can just type up quickly and move on. Good for having another post, but not good for getting another story idea.

So, I’m going to stop that. I’m going to stop throwing story ideas up here for this challenge. I’m not enjoying it, and I get the feeling you aren’t either. Instead, I’ll make it a goal to have one or two (I haven’t made my mind up about that yet) stories written to put up here before the end of the challenge.

I’m not feeling bitter about this switch. I want to enjoy what I’m writing and it will feel right to actually write some of the stories I’m thinking about.

Talk to you guys tomorrow,

Liam
