Paperback Writer challenged her readers to write and post a work of fiction to be available to read for free. Quite a few folks answered the call. Check it out. I know I will be as soon as I have time to spare. Ha. I just added to my scream-inducing To Be Read pile on Monday (local Book Warehouse is closing and their already reduced prices were slashed another 40%; I'll be going back when they get to the "everything $1 or $2" portion of their blowout), and now I have more to read.
I had hoped to participate myself, but moving and the DDJ insanity completely derailed my writing. The project I had intended for this challenge is about half-way done, and, due to its seasonal content, will be ready for me to use for Fall 2007. Not quite the timeline I had wanted, but part of my writing goals for this year included writing a good amount of short fiction to have able to send out regularly until it sold while I worked on the slower-to-finish novels. Mission accomplished.
