April 23, Day 114: 355 words

April 24, Day 115: 326 words

That’s a grand total of 4,110 words for the week, 16,166 for the month, and 68,246 for the year!

Did I beat last week’s total?

Last week I wrote 3,592 words, so with 4,110 words this week I have once again topped my previous week’s total, woohoo!


This week I earned the “Antitheses-nemesis” badge, for describing my main character’s opposite!


Technically, my MC’s opposite isn’t her nemesis. My stripper-turned sleuth, Venus Delmar, has to help her opposite: a church full of nuns!

Goals for next week?

Saturday is the last day of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge, so I’ve joined a new challenge for the month of May! It’s called A Story A Day, and if you’d like to play along, you can sign up here.

Since writing a full-length story every single day is quite a tall order, I’ve decided to make it slightly easier on myself and stick to flash fiction. I’ve even made a list of topics to write about, so you’ll have to follow along to see how well I stick to it, or whether I end up going rogue. At the end of the challenge I plan to publish a collection of all of the stories, with the tentative title Mayday: Flash Fiction for Adrenaline Junkies. You can pre-order a copy of the book at Smashwords.

In the meantime…
