I think it’s time to make an announcement. Coming Soon: Twelve Days of Fiction

The following text was originally published over on Google+. A secondary effect of the inspirational notes mentioned within is that I’ve also decided to set up this Medium account, where I’ll keep publishing my stories.

I think it’s time to make an announcement. Coming Soon: Twelve Days of Fiction, from Christmas Day up until January 6th.

This bears an explanation, I’d say.

It all started with writer +Delilah S. Dawson, who a few months ago tweeted something along these lines: If you write, then you’re a writer. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. I took it to heart and updated my profiles accordingly.

Then some 10 days ago I saw an inspiring post in Google+: this one by +Hannah R. Lyon, https://plus.google.com/u/0/102603675686065715401/posts/1adWqKNE7fA

While I don’t necessarily agree with everything in there, it certainly got me thinking.

And then, on the same day, +Michael Coorlim, bless his heart, tweeted this, adding me as an author in his FF tweet:

Now I do have written a few things here and there, but I basically have nothing to show for it. And so this idea was born: Twelve Days of Writing. From Christmas Day I intend to write twelve short stories employing my usual writing tool, 750words.com. I plan to write some original stories, some homages and what can only be called fan fiction.

We’ll see whether I can finish them all, and how it goes. Frankly, right now I’m frightened!
