This Confused Blog of Mine: An Intro of Sorts

When I started this blog, I thought it would be useful to run it alongside my main blog, Only 100 Words. I wanted to use this blog for longer stories and writing about writing.

But I’ve since discovered that people love 100-word serials – the two serialised stories on Only 100 Words are among the most popular things I’ve written. And I don’t want to be another writer writing about writing – there’s plenty of those around who do it much better than I could. So my initial reason for having this blog has gone.

What is still there is the need for a place to post anything that isn’t a 100-word story: my 3LineThursday micro fiction, writing prompts, calls for submissions – hell, maybe even the odd post about writing.

And there’s this idea I’ve been toying with for a while, a monthly or maybe even weekly round-up of the best stories I’ve read in whatever period I settle on. This weekend, Lisa of Zen and Pi and Lynn of Word Shamble linked to stories of mine. Is there anything better than have someone else recommend something you’ve written? I read lots of flash fiction every week – maybe it’s time I shared my favourites.

Show of hands: Who’s interested in a curated flash fiction reading list?

  1. Hi, Sonya! The fun thing about writing a blog is watching its development; either its progression or its decline. I’m experiencing the same thing, but since I’ve never written a blog before Blogging U. came into my life, I look forward to seeing where this blogging business goes. Good luck!

  2. That’s a really interesting idea, actually. There’s so much out there, but I don’t have the time to search for new sites. One vote in the ‘yes’ box 🙂
    thanks for the pingback – you’re very kind 🙂

    1. My pleasure – your blog is one of my favourites, so I’ll probably find lots of reason why I’ll have to link to one of your posts even though they’re not stories 😀

      1. Ah, thank you – you know the feeling’s mutual 🙂 I’m not sure why I don’t post more fiction – promoting my writing is why I set the blog up in the first place! I just keep working on this novel, I guess. Mind you, I have just got my first paid writing job as a guest blogger, so I guess posting so much is paying off 🙂

    1. Oh, I am. But if I’ve learnt one thing from running Only 100 Words for the last six months, it’s that having a focus for your blog is half the battle. I don’t think I’ve got that focus for this blog yet…
      Thank you for reading 🙂
