In this short post, I’m not going to get into my plans for future writing with this project. There probably will be some. But not for a while. However, let’s talk about the past.
I wrote a dozen stories this year and many of them I’m quite proud of. That being said, I’m proud of what my memory shows they were. I haven’t reread any of them even a paragraph since writing them. So my first project will be to reread all of them. I don’t believe I’ll be making any edits to them (at this time – though I may give in and at least make glaring grammatical corrections), I’ll just be reading them to enjoy them.
Then, like most things on my website, I’ll probably rank them. I have a feeling there will already be some front-runners for top 3, and I probably know which couple are at the bottom of the ladder, but where will everything fall? That’s still in the air as certain stories may be better/worse than my memory leads me to believe.
I enjoyed this project in many ways. At the core, I got out of it exactly what I wanted – I forced myself to write and I forced myself to use rigid deadlines. That I wrote a few very good pieces of writing is icing on the cake, really.
