Someone (oracne?) mentioned a rule or advice for short stories in their journal. Start as close to the conflict as possible, if I remember it right. Useful, because I tend to wander off too far into the past to explain the events. I would like to give the dare a personal twist. Write four short stories with exactly 1000 words each! Hmm, why not.
jmtorres asked me to write down the Rhade bunnies that tortured me the last weeks. I really should though they are snippets at best and worse *bangs the head on the desk* they are smutslashmumble and the idea of writing them down freaks me out. I mean I like to read them but writing myself... *gulp*
Ah yes, the wordcount. It has improved during July thanks to the writing dare.
