It’s time for the second monthly update of my progress in the Write 1 Sub1 Monthly Challenge.
This Ray Bradburry-inspired writing challenge is fairly self-explanatory. The goal for the monthly challenge (there’s also a weekly challenge for the extremely intrepid and productive type!) is to write one work of fiction or poetry each month, and to submit one work of fiction or poetry each month.
It can be the same piece, as Bradbury did it, or separate pieces.
Write 1: I didn’t have any trouble with this part….
- On February 4, I wrote and posted 43 Weeks, a photo-prompted piece of flash fiction.
- On February 11, I wrote and posted The Last House, another photo-prompted flash fiction piece. I really felt this one, and it received many positive comments.
- On February 19, I wrote and posted A Hawk From a Handsaw, a Trifextra Challenge. I always wanted Hamlet and Ophelia to have a happier ending – or just the chance to follow their hearts, and so I gave them one.
- I worked, intermittently, on a piece of flash erotica, eventually named “Twice-Coupled“.
- I completed, revised, and polished “Twice-Coupled”, the flash erotica piece mentioned above. Just under the wire, on February 29, I celebrated Jim’s return home by submitting it to Clean Sheets.
- At this writing, I have not yet heard back from the publication.
So, there you have it….may second month, and I managed to complete the challenge and then some….and I am looking forward to even more activity, this month!
