2019 Writing Challenge

2018 was a lousy year for writing around here. I had trouble starting projects, and, once started, finished very few. I began to wonder if perhaps I'd reached the end of all the writing that was in me.

This year I've written 6 stories in 6 months, which was a small challenge I set myself. Some of them were very short, not all of them have been edited yet, and, full disclosure, I finished writing the last one yesterday. But I am still pretty pleased with myself.

Three have been submitted, of which one has been accepted and will appear in ROAR volume 10 later this year, while two appear to have vanished into the void.

I'm not sure what's changed, but I've written more words in the first half of 2019 than I managed in all of 2018, and I hope this continues.
