Did you know that Octob...I mean INKTOBER is almost here?
I've been playing around with a novel, working on the Secret Short Story Society shipment (far too many s's in that sentence) and reading the work of other authors so I've been successfully ignoring the passing months.
At least, I WAS ignoring them until I was reminded by Dream of Fire (Fairies and Finds) that October was fast approaching. I won't say I had a panic attack when she sent me the above image, but I did find breathing a tiny bit harder for several minutes.
I AGREED TO WRITE 31 STORIES IN THE SPAN OF ONE MONTH? WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?!
Once I was able to breathe again and my brain stopped screaming, I realized we could do this. The hard part will fall to the lovely Dream of Fire. SHE has to come up with all the artwork before I even have to worry about writing! While she is a fantastic artist, she is also a writer, so I know I'm in safe hands when it comes to this project.
Am I still nervous? Oh, yes. I do think this will be a fun challenge for both of us that I know we can handle, nerves or no. I'm looking forward to the editing of my stories so we can publish the book in late Dec/early Jan!
First things first. We have the list, now we need to get the supplies and carve out the necessary time! I will also have a little interview with the artist herself up in a week or so! Be sure to check back.
