New short story blog/challenge

December 2, 2011

I’m starting a new blog that will start posting new material on the first of the year, called Short Story 365.

It’s premise started as a challenge, can you read one short story a day for one year, and grew from there. It seems like a great way to celebrate the short story and by doing it as a group, and publicly, maybe we can help each other stay on track. Ultimately though this is an experiment and like any experiment it can fail unless we can grab a great group of short fiction lovers and keep at it.

This will be a group blog with volunteers logging their (hopefully daily) progress. Anyone can participate and I’ll be arranging prizes.

Head on over there, check it out and join in.

    Though I’ll not be able to read them each day, I’ll do my damndest to read them all at some point.

    Sounds great.

    Mind you, I failed Jen’s book challenge last year with mindblowing patheticness.

    Count me in.

    I would love to be able to read 1 short story per day, and 1 novel a week.

    2012 might be the year.

    Looking forward to this… I’ve been planning my collections on my Kindle, and I really can’t wait to read them all.

    I can’t do anything without being challenged or threatened, so this might be the one that’s gets me moving. Great idea!
