If the whole point of the contest was to push out words, I did that. And did enough to accomplish the goals that I set for September. There are more check marks than normal.
So, using the momentum that was created while being challenged by the crazy wordsmiths that are my friends, I have set the following goals for October:
1. All critiques.
2. 40 Pages of La Llorona
3. 20 Poems (for the poetry book that I foolishly requested the CWC to read in November)
4. 10-Minute Play (about 10 pages, for a contest)
Suddenly, after all the word-pushing, this seems very do-able.
Jenny writes dark fiction that her mother hates. Her stories and essays have appeared in Across the Margin, Pantheon, Shimmer, Black Denim Lit, Skive, and others. When she’s not writing her own stuff, she’s reading mysteries for Criminal Element. When she’s not writing fiction or reviews, she’s writing/directing/performing/designing plays at Springs Ensemble Theatre.
