Twenty-Five Candles

so, today is my 25th birthday.

 

today is also 'R U OK?' Day.

 

these two facts would be mutually exclusive, except one of my friends inboxed everyone on my Facebook account and told them to ask me 'R U OK?' instead of wishing me a happy birthday.

 

so now I have 95 wall posts (and counting), all asking if I'm ok.

 

I also had the following interaction with my mother this morning:

it was somewhat amusing.

 

anyway, on the writing front, I can happily say that I sat down and plotted A Shot of Clarity in its entirety last night. frame-by-frame, scene-by-scene. there'll be seven parts to the story (plus Prologue and Epilogue), and they should all be written in pretty quick order.

 

in terms of its marketability... I'm not sure. I have this dream of completing a longer story and seriously workshopping it within the local writing community, but I feel that the final product will be a weird, in-between length. 10-15k sorta range. too long to be a short story, not long enough to be a novella.

 

I'll figure it out, though.

 

after all, if it's really, really good, who's going to care about its length?

 

I feel like there's a that's what she said joke in that somewhere.

 

maybe another time.

 

Peace

LOL. Are you okay? :P

 

 

Seriously, good job on the plotting out your story. You never know, as you write, it might gain in length. Sometimes I actually look for 10-15k stories because they only take about 20 minutes to read. Perfect for commuters too. I feel for you on the birthday text. My father in law calls before 6 am EVERY year for my husband. Fine during weekdays if he's working because he gets up at 5 am but on a weekend? C'mon!! :P Maybe you can take a nap later.

 

 

 

Oh, and happy b-day btw!
