The more time I put towards expanding myself creatively, the more cool stuff seems to happen. Here’s an update on what’s been happening on the creative front recently, and a look ahead at a few things you can expect in the future.
The Diaper Fund Evolves
Your generosity has far outstripped my expectations, or even my hopes. I created the Diaper Fund hoping to raise $300 by the beginning of April 2012. Instead, you guys polished off that $300 target in three weeks. Thank you all so much for your Flare Fiction preorders and your donations!
Of course, I’m not going to stop selling my writing just because we reached that goal, so I’ve converted the Diaper Fund into the Baby Fund. New stories and anthologies will be coming out between now and April to help fundraise for a car seat, a baby monitor, and possibly a rocking chair, with anything extra that I sell going towards clothes, toys, and other small necessities.
Thank you again for being so generous and pushing me to keep writing!
I have all kinds of ideas about what to do with myself creatively these days. Some of the ideas are only half-formed, so I don’t want to jump the gun by announcing or releasing anything prematurely. There are a couple of things, though, that will definitely be happening between now and, let’s say, February or March.
I have a variety of short stories that I’ll be releasing over the next couple of months, probably at a rate of one every couple of weeks or so. I’m still ironing out the exact details, but one way or another you’ll have the chance to do some interesting reading in the near future, I promise!
The majority of my writing is only available digitally, but I know that a lot of people, myself included, like to read on paper, too. At some point in the new year, I’m going to be putting together a print anthology of short stories, flash fiction, and poetry, combining the contents of my existing short fiction collections with other unreleased stories and some stuff that won’t be available anywhere else.
New chapters keep flowing over at Special People, so if you haven’t been reading so far, I suggest you go catch up! SP has been a ton of fun so far, but this is only the beginning. If all goes according to plan, I should have some new multimedia offerings from the Special People universe over the coming months. Sorry, no more specific details than that yet!
