Well, needless to say, 2017 has started off full throttle. Hence, why I’ve been very busy and not able to post anything for over a month. It’s nice to be back blogging again with my first post of the New Year. I hope that your year has begun happily and peacefully.
Today’s topic is about resolutions, specifically, my writing resolutions for 2017. I have a few ideas for some new and original short stories ricocheting around in my brain right now. I’m also thinking about converting (into a short story) one or two more of the one-act plays that I wrote in college way back when. One of those plays (The DiVacci Curse) has already been converted into a short story and is available on the My Books page of this blog. Please check it out if you have the time.
One of the plays is a murder mystery and the other is a comedy (yes, a stretch for me). The comedy will be the more difficult play to convert because it has a lot of physicality in it. On the other hand, I can elaborate on certain scenes and add a lot more detail in a short story than I could within the confines of the theater stage. *See my post from Dec. 3, 2016 for more detail about converting a play into a short story.
As for my original story ideas, I have tentative plans to write another ghost story, but one unlike The DiVacci Curse. I have a few other ideas to ponder and explore as well. We’ll see how it all sorts itself out. One thing that I can say for certain is that I plan to publish at least one more short story by the end of this year. Realistically, that’s the best that time and life will allow me to do at this point. In the meantime, I encourage you to check out my other books.
As always, thanks for reading.
Best wishes to everyone for a safe, happy and healthy New Year!
