The second part of Ray Bradbury’s challenge to writers is to write 52 stories in a year. He said it’s impossible to write 52 bad ones in a row. I’ll see. I started my first for the year on January 1st and I’m writing my fourth now.
I’ve joined the Romance Writers of Australia as I’ve been working on a romance, and have written several romance short stories. I completed a full romance novel a few years ago, and want to write more in this genre. I believe it’s an extremely supportive group, and so I’m hoping to learn a lot and become truly inspired.
A few years ago I had the crazy idea to do Ray Bradbury’s challenge, which is to read a story, a poem, and an essay every day for 1000 days. It was fun and I learned a lot while it lasted, but I found I couldn’t continue when I took on the role of my mother’s carer. She died the following year, and I had no energy for anything for a time. I’m back on my feet now, however, so I’m starting again. You can follow me by clicking on this link.
