Friday the 13th Short Reads

(Frowny face…because I thought I’d published this last Friday.)

When you haven’t got time for a full (or even cereal) breakfast, what do you do? Perhaps you grab a yogurt or a breakfast bar.

With reading, if you haven’t time to read a full novel, try articles or short stories. For instance, I have bookshelves lined with folk tales from around the world for quick, interesting reads.

The same time-issue goes for writing. A few posts ago, I wrote about taking a break from novel writing to write short stories. It refreshed my writeability. Three of those stories were published last week in two anthologies.

THE YELLOW BOOKE, VOLUME 6, October 2017, “The Hairy Man”: https://www.oldstyletales.com/tyb6 (The ebook version is free.)

31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN Volume 2, Published October 2017, “The Babysitter Mystery” and “The Hand”: https://www.amazon.com/dp/197805715/

31 Days of October, Volume 2

Eat, read, and write in short bursts, but don’t forget to also take the time to relax with a good meal, or a good story. To really and truly enhance your time, include friends — eating out at a restaurant, discussing a book in a book club, or being in a writing group (critique group, attending a conference, etc.).

  1. Congrats on your anthology stories! I took a summer off from working on a novel that was driving me crazy. I really enjoyed writing the short stories–that’s how I started writing. You offer great advice! Thanks.
