Monthly Stories

Monthly Stories

Years ago, I started writing Weekly Stories, where Iíd get an idea, hammer out a story, and post it each week. There were three main reasons I did that. One, itís good practice for writing. Two, it gave me a pool of stories to draw from to fill up collections. And three, it gave a reason for people to visit my webpage. But I stopped because I wanted to spend that time and energy on my ďmore importantĒ stories. Also, back then I could get an idea and hammer out a somewhat decent story in a few hundred words. Now it seems every idea I get is for a novella. I donít know if Iíve ďgrownĒ as a writer and want to delve deeper into topics, or if Iíve just burned through all of my few hundred-word story ideas.

Thatís how everything stood at the end of 2022 when Twitter went into a death spiral. Which sucked for me because probably 90% of all my social media interaction/book marketing was done on Twitter. So I was in a bit of a panic trying to figure out how to adjust. One thing I had been thinking about was trying to do more with my webpage. So Monthly Stories was born. By giving myself a month instead of just a week, hopefully Iíll be able to come up with something. Iíll also have stories to add to new collections, and itís a reason for people to check out my website. I guess the more things change, the more they stay the same.
