October's Activities

I'm back to the blogging world and am so happy to see you all again!  My life will start to calm mostly by October so I am preparing to make everything "normal" again.  Well, not exactly.  There are two things I am going to be trying this October.

Flashing Month

Before you call the police on me, it isn't like that.  I mean, flash fiction.  Oh yes, I am going to try to compose at least four flash pieces (about one a week) during the month of October.  Why?  Because I haven't been writing as much fiction as I should.  I need a kick in the pants and have no one else around to really hold me accountable.  Each piece will be between 500 to 750 words and due on Sunday.

The Muse Online Writers Conference

A free online writer conference with pitching sessions, Q&A, and workshops.  They do request a donation so, if you participate and can, please do donate.  Registration is until September 25th for the pitch sessions.  If you want to know what they have this year visit:


  1. Wow, flash fiction every week sounds incredible. Good luck and I know you'll do a great job :)

  2. Thank you all for your wishes on Flashing October. I hope it will be more pleasure than pain but I am not sure. Anyone up for doing it with me?
