Proof of Life - Disclaimer for April Posts

I thought I should provide some proof of life since it has been weeks since my last post. I promise I am still alive! I may have created more work for myself than I could possibly do successfully, but I will do it all anyways.

I have submitted a new short story to a contest for QuaranCon and made a few stops on the virtual tour for my upcoming short story in the IWSG Anthology, Dark Matter.

Most of my time (besides working and mothering) has been devoted to edits on my novel manuscript and preparing for the April AtoZ Challenge.

For the challenge, I am presenting (hopefully) 26 episodes of flash fiction. I call them flash fiction because they are mostly short and lack the multiple rounds of editing that a polished story would have. But truly, each episode will connect in a chain to form a larger story about an apprentice herbalist on board a generation ship who makes an interesting discovery about her mentor and the population as a whole.

This brings me to the disclaimer. I am currently drafting episode 11. The first episode goes live in just four days, and I still have 15 more to write. In other words, I have a lot of work and not enough time to do it beautifully. Please keep in mind this is a challenge, an experiment, and a fun exercise in creativity and not a fully polished, published work. I appreciate any and all feedback and hope you enjoy the end product. 

Have a fantastic week, everyone. I will see you on Thursday 😬

    The key rule for A-Zing... never justify your writing!!! I've just spent the last three weeks (and will be right up till Wednesday) organising posts on all three of my blogs, plus creating images for Instagram on the alphabet... it's March madness in prep for springing into April. Mine for Wild YAM bloggy are definitely 'flow of consciousness' and polish does not even figure!!! YAM xx

    1. Good to know! I am so excited to see the results of everyone's hard work!
