6000 words in a week… Or rather a story in a week that happens to be 6000 words…


A short update on my current foray into short fiction. My first short project is moving forward. Granted a bit slower than I had originally wanted it to. But it is moving forward no less. I have the basic ideas in place for my first 6000 word story and I have decided to put all the hard work I did brainstorming about The Man with the Devil’s Matchbook to good use. That is right, this is going to be a short story based on ideas that all grew out of a simple plain matchbook. Not that you would recognize it as such now. Or maybe you would.

My basic idea is that of a police procedural type mystery but with a heavy magic spin. I am liking the ideas that I had before about having magic be a course of study and semi-common place. Well as common as quantum physics in everyday life. That might be a big challenge in and of itself but I think it will be fun figuring it all out. My main character is still very basic and hopefully I will get him fleshed out soon. I plan on hitting the writing hard in the second hald of this week. (Yes I know that starts tomorrow.) I know that 6000 words should only take me five hours total to write at my top speed. So wish me luck. And if you really want to help… send coffee.
