Yeah, you read that right. A group of colleagues and I thought we’d like to torture ourselves a bit and offered up a challenge. 10 Short Stories in 10 Weeks. It’s exactly how it sounds: 10 short stories, 1 a week, based on a certain preset setting and genre. To be honest, I’m already behind — the first story was due last Saturday, but due to Baltimore Comic-Con, travel, and Footprints obligations, I couldn’t make it on time. Sue me. The point is, I’m done now, and there’s already a lot of great content live at the site.
Think of it as a workshop of sorts. We’ve posted our work for constructive critique from our peers, and I’m sure many of us will go on to tweak these stories in the future. Or maybe some of us will just throw them in the garbage. Either way, it’s a fun, productive writing exercise. My first story (setting: post-apocalyptic, genre: horror), The Hunt, is now up and ready for your eyeballs.
