As we say over here – cari nahas.
I can’t remember the last time I wrote a short story, although it could have been the whopper that got published in Dark City 2 ( 2007, ed. Xeus). My objective is to crank out a couple of short stories in a week – at the minimum word count of 1,000 – so that I’ll go from zero stories to a figure that is not zero. Sounds like a plan? Cool.
You can randomly drop by my Twitch livestream to see if I’m online and cheer me on. I am regularly on every night from 9pm until I finish writing my story.
If all goes well or goes at all, you will find a list of completed stories updated below.
