I Have Promised…
Since I’ve been working on some short stories for Smith’s Monthly, I was reminded about my old making-a-living posts. Over the years I have done periodic posts about how it is possible in this new world to make a living at writing short fiction only. That belief hasn’t changed.
Math hasn’t changed much either.
So I’ll update that next week for 2017. Stay tuned. It seems to always be a popular post in different ways. (grin)
This summer I did some challenges with writers to write either 30 short stories in 30 or 60 days and/or also three novels in three months. If they did they got two online workshops.
I am just now finishing up the reading and I must say I have had a blast reading the stories. I even found three or four short stories I would buy for Pulphouse if the authors send them back to me at some point. That surprised me.
Some writers wrote right through the Time of Great Forgetting. Super fun for me. Now just need to finish reading the last few novels and about twenty or so short stories.
Not sure what I will read after that. (grin)
