Because it’s not a challenge if nobody knows about it
So hey, it’s October! And because I like to write, I am setting myself a new writing challenge this month: To write a short piece of fiction every day, throughout the month of October.
I was inspired by a recent post on Tumblr where the OP had written a story every day for 30 days. I don’t think I can do that, for a variety of reasons; I do, however, think I can write a part of a story, a scene from a short story or novel, every day for 31 days. I have a lot of unwritten stories in my head, a lot of unfinished drafts in my Google Docs; I’ve already proven I can produce something daily when I did the 31 Hymns to Antinous back in May.
So, fiction every day for October! Some of it will be fanfic and might get posted on my Tumblr; some of it will be fanfic of myths and might get posted on my blog; some of it, gods willing, will be original fiction and might or might not be shared anywhere. At the end of the month I will report on my success.
