'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, but I don't think I'm going to make it to 52 unless I write a lot of drabbles. 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 properly. I will be working only in established universes, since I am trying to build out the online bookshelves over on Martha.net. Current plan is: Outline (Day 1&2), Rough Draft (Day 3&4), Editing (Day 5&6), Formatting and posting (Day 7). I have no idea if this will work, so I'll be adjusting my game plan as I go. For those weeks when life gets away from me, I'm going to do a drabble, since I can normally pull one of those from rough to polished in a few hours. Days 1, 2, 5, and 6 will be MuseFic, as that's my normal method of hashing out stories. Days 3 and 4 will have the rough draft and Day 7 will have the final.
