Free Stuff and Short Stories

Short stories have always been very interesting to me. The flow of the text differs greatly from that of a regular novel and I never really thought I could write a short story. How was I supposed to convey a message in so short of a space? How was I supposed to evoke a myriad of emotions from the reader? Or even just one powerful one?

After taking a science fiction course and getting some of that reading under my belt, I have been gathering more ideas for stories. My creativity has nearly been overwhelming. It’s gotten to the point that I’m going to compile these ideas into one book. 

And I’m giving it away. 

For a period of time. 

I feel like it would be great to share these ideas and for those who can’t afford to just go around buying books, for the first few months it will be completely, totally, 100% free. No five finger discounts needed. I’m actually kind of excited. I don’t really have a time frame other than the one that my excitement has been imposing upon myself. It would be great, also, to have readers give me feedback on my writing. That’s all for now; I will post the story to this blog when I finish it.

I didn’t go steady with my 1k words a day. It’s amazing how much stress can set you back on things you love doing – which is why I am going to mitigate my stress and try to set up a routine. I need to drink more tea (and of course more coffee), do ballroom dance more, and probably fish more. I love all of those things. I’m not a person who gives up easily, and some of the choices I’m making certainly feel like I’m giving up – but it’s not.

It’s starting a different life path.

I’m going to be creating an environment that is conducive to my mental health, and subsequently my success. This is a touch more serious than what I am used to writing about, but such is life. This doesn’t pertain to just writers – this pertains to anyone who is lost or confused. I personally go through an existential crisis everyday. What really keeps me driving towards success is the knowledge that I will be successful. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel, although I’m not sure if it’ll be a hundred degrees when I finally break through; however, that is beside the point. The point is, I’d rather be walking out of a tunnel than sitting in it moping and dwelling on how I am in a cold, dark tunnel that smells like sewer rats while everyone outside is already adapting to the well-lit environment of the world beyond the tunnel.
