This week I’m doing something new with my story. You’ll notice I’ve added an audio file! I hope it works – let me know if the file won’t open for you and I’ll try to figure out what I’m doing wrong.
My hope is that making these recordings will help me get over the difficulty I have when I’m trying to talk about my book. Maybe I’ll get more comfortable speaking in general. My most optimistic hope is that I’ll even be able to give my pitch to the agents at Chicon without breaking into a cold sweat at the thought.
I’m looking forward to reading your stories this week. We have more members than ever before, so it is taking longer than Friday evening to get through them all. Sometimes it is taking me days! I start with the first commenters first and move down the list as quickly as I can. If the day job is hectic, it’ll take me longer.
And we’re off to write, link and read stories!
Tweet your link, too, and add the #FridayFictioneers hashtag so we can easily find you and RT.
I’m always open to constructive criticism if you see mistakes or ways to improve upon what I’ve done. This is a learning exercise for me. However, not everyone feels that way, so if you don’t see an invitation to critique on their post, don’t do it. A lot of people just want and need encouragement!
We are the Friday Fictioneers and we gather every Friday here to post a very short story. It’s a great way to showcase your voice, but to do it in 100 word is almost an extreme challenge. It forces you to choose strong verbs and concise phrases.
Hop on board and post one of yours or visit ours, or do both.
