Story Kindling

  • Post category:Writing
There's a desk in here somewhere...

As part of my push to bring more focus to my home business attempts I’m going to start up the Daily Snippits posting again. These are drabble-sized chunks of story that are basically a longer stab at the Saturday Story Prompts writing exercises.

The original rules for snippits was that they couldn’t be set in an existing universe, thus pushing me to try and think of something new each time—but after four hundred-some-odd snippits I’m officially abandoning that idea. I need to use what I have rather than focusing on dreaming up even more loose ends.

So I’m going to be focusing on building up existing worlds/verses in small chunks, akin to my fan fiction writing. Some of them might wander out of the 100 word limit and into flash fiction, but we’ll see.

It’s not quite as productive as working on the serial stories directly, but I’m at an impasse and I need something to get me moving again. Hopefully this will help get the words flowing the way they used to. *crosses fingers*

So once more into the breach, dear friends–

Martha Bechtel

My name is Martha Bechtel and I write fantasy and science fiction stories, paint small model horses silly colors, cast resin and plaster magnets, code random code (and Wordpress plugins)... Come on in and join in the fun!
