I am in a difficult phase right now. I have many short story ideas, but how do I decide what is good enough to include? Short stories are fun to write but don’t sell well. It is just not as popular of a “genre” as it was years ago.
I actually have an idea now that I want to see how it comes together. This story will not be published because I want to just explore all my possibilities. Writing is about exploration. If a person cant write about different topics then they can’t grow as a writer. My strength as a writer has developed alot in the last two years.
My poetry has really expanded. Poetry was always a love of mine but I wasn’t good at it. I started doing the haikus on the blog to challenge myself. I hope readers go into my archive and check out the poetry in the last few months.
Now my plan is to challenge myself in other areas. I want to tackle better plots. I believe I am strong with my dialogue but have a hard time with plot and setting.
The blog will start to focus more on me attempting to write short stories. I also will discuss more of things going on in my life related to society and culture.
