21 Day Sprint - Day 4

Slacker that I am, today just didn't do it for me. Took two good naps, though!

As for what I wrote, I dabbled in 3 projects...

1) a 300 word "flash" piece for a little contest here. (BTW, please give my little micro-fiction a "thumbs up" - if you like it, that is. If I'm in the top three by the end of next week, I advance to the finals. ;)

2) a 200 word opening for a Sword of Otrim story. Last summer I wrote two medieval fantasy tales, and I'm thinking about writing a few more and then link them into an episodic novel, like I did with Ma Tutt.)

3) 1000 words nonfiction for an upcoming interview. I won't count this toward my daily word totals since it didn't advance a story. So I ended up with only 500 new words of fiction. Some days are like that.

Summary of word count and genre of projects:

Day 1 - 3200 words (space western, horror)
Day 2 - 2400 words (satire/humor)
Day 3 - 2700 words (satire/humor)
Day 4 - 500 words (fantasy)
Total - 8800 words so far



Projects on Deck (those I know I'll be working on in the next few months):
+ Ma Tutt's Secret Spice (Book #2 of Cat Cozy)
+ post-death horror story with Gustavo Bondoni
+ historical werewolf story with Jeff Chapman
+ spiritual suspense with Stoney M. Setzer
+ MG alt history with T. M. Hunter
+ space western with Dan Devine
+ thriller/mystery for Joe Konrath
+ YA paranormal with friend
+ cozy mystery with friend
+ a few others! lol

Thanks for following along on my 21 Day Sprint to the End of Summer.
