My take on National Novel Writing Month will be National Flash Writing Month. I'm going to write 50,000 words of flash fiction this November. Let's say 250 words a piece (Though that's not in stone) so we're looking at 200 stories. I believe this is in line with my goal as I may try to sell some of them, and expand others to short stories. I can use goofy ones for the Beware the Hairy Mango podcast.

That's all for now.

200 stories in a month is less than seven a day.

Good Luck!

What a great idea! I love it!

Elke said...

Good luck indeed! And do you have ambitions of working, sleeping, having meals, doing the odd load of laundry during this time as well?

I couldn't start this morning because I had either no frakking idea or too frakking many ideas, still not sure, so had to wait until after work. But I left work at a reasonable hour, and I'm at it now...except for stopping by here, just briefly, see if there's a new Newt & John, then right back to it.

I would look forward to updates but you'll be too busy to post them!

Good luck to you, Elke! I think I'll enough time to do whatever, because I can tear ass through 1667 words in about an hour and a half, as long as I'm not too choosy. And for first drafts, I'm not too choosy.

If you have too many ideas, just throw them all in the mix together. You have 50,000 words to cover after all. You'll need everything you can get.

I am going to create my own business since you don't see any positive jobs around the market.

Can anybody provide any tips or sites about how to get government grant money to start with my personal small business? I have been previously looking on the internet but every single website asks for money and I have been previously told by the unemployment office to avoid the websites that ask for cash for grant related information because they are scammers. I would be sincerely grateful for any help.

Hello! I am [url=]shoes shipping worldwide[/url]
Because online [b]shoes shipping worldwide[/b].
I was looking for a [b]shoe store uk [/b]to wear with jeans and casual outfits, and also for slightly dressier outfits. These are more dressy than casual, and didn't fit what I needed. The also ran very small, I ordered an 11ww for my 10-10 1/2 wide foot and they fit with little room to spare. On my right foot they rubbed the joint where my big toe joins my foot. Also the leather was much stiffer than I anticipated. The inside is the shiny leather or leather-look material that tends to make your feet sweat if worn without socks. Pretty shoe, would be okay for someone with an average width foot looking for a work or church type shoe, but had to go back for my purposes. I ordered the Clarks Book Romance instead, they are super soft, casual, and are okay to wear without socks.

Xanax (Alprazolam) is used to treat anxiety disorders and panic attacks. Alprazolam is in a class of medications called benzodiazepines. It works by decreasing abnormal excitement in the brain. Unlike other benzodiazepines which must be taken several times a day, Xanax is a once-daily formula, helping you all day long.
