52 in 52 : Story #2 – Night Lights (Whistling in the Dark’verse)

‘Write a short story every week. It’s not possible to write 52 bad short stories in a row.’ – Ray Bradbury

I’ve joined the madness over on the NaNoWriMo thread and going to try and write 52 short stories (or Flash Fiction) in 2017. I’m aiming for flash fiction of roughly five thousand words or less and I want to use this as a way to learn how to outline via MuseFic.

This post contains the Outline (MuseFic), Rough Draft, Editing (MuseFic), but no Final Draft.

If you want to read them as a daily post, check out the story on Wattpad! 🙂

Summary: Mellie was six when her brother died.

Please note this is the working/rough draft copy of the story! While it’s complete, there are issues with consistent tone, pacing, and my normal grammar kerfluffles. I am currently looking for Beta Readers, thusly, I’d love feedback if you’d like to leave some!

One-word Title (NaNoWriMo Day 12)

NaNoWriMo 2015!

This is the daily posting of my 2015 NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) ‘Novel’ in which I and my Fictives attempt to fix the 2007 NaNo Novel Dogs of the Never Never.

So there will be snark and worldbuilding and lots of spoilers and the process of rebuilding a novel from the bones of its former corpse.

50,000+ words (eventually) of Fun!

Total Wordcount: 12,009
Note: Wordcount totals no longer reflect the length of the posts as these were expanded on for clarity after the day was over.
