As I mentioned at the beginning of the month, I was a rebel for this year’s National Novel Writing Month. I wrote 50,000 words of short stories instead of 50,000 words on a novel.
On the other hand, once a short story is finished, the momentum ends. Starting a new tale can be difficult on busy or exhausting days.
In the end, I’m glad I did short stories instead of a novel. It was a fun experiment, and most of the stories seemed to turn out pretty well. I completed ten stories in all. Once they’ve been edited, I hope to submit them to magazines or other publications.
Did you do National Novel Writing Month? If so, how did it go for you?
