Title of the 50th Story In My Daily Short Story Challenge…
That’s right, just for kicks and giggles, I realized as I started into the story and put the date on the file that it was story #50 of the challenge. So I figured, “Why Not?”
And I titled the story “Fifty” and started writing. Turned out to be a 2,300 word Thunder Mountain story. Fun one.
The challenge of a story per day for a year is going along fine so far. I am behind only on getting the stories on Patreon. Put another up last night, going for sleep tonight so no more tonight.
As it was on day one, I never have any idea what I am going to write when I sit down at my writing computer. I just save my writing template to the days date, then look at my title sheets to smash a few titles together and then start typing. Every story so far except one has been in one of my two dozen regular series. Bryant Street has the most, of course, and Thunder Mountain is holding a close second, something I did not expect if I would have thought about it.
Five or six of them are Seeders Universe, and I might use a couple of those on a new novel or novella. And I used a few of the Pahket Jones short stories in the new Pahket Jones novella.
And got five of them now that Kris really wants me to submit to Queen or Asimov’s. Haven’t done it yet. Didn’t have that part of the filing in my system, so got to bring that up and into place before I go much farther.
So in other words, fifty stories in, going fine so far. On to tomorrow.
