We’re a little over halfway through November, and I’ve been busy writing in my spare time. This year, rather than creating a whole novel, I decided to work on a series of short stories in a variety of styles and genres. Most of them will probably never see the light of day, but it’s fun to flex some different creative writing muscles and try out some styles and techniques I don’t use when writing Hazzard stories.
As of Tuesday morning, I have just over 10,000 words written across a half dozen different stories. A few are complete, but a couple are still in progress. I’m not really sure where most of them will go. It’s kind of fun, creating new characters and situations completely independent of Hazzard and Arcadia. I’m not sure how much I’ll end up with by the end of the month, but it’s a nice break and a fun way to stretch my skills.
