So I just found out today from The Best Damn Creative Writing Blog that it’s Short Story Month. How great is that? Just when I was getting all sad that National Poetry Month had ended I have something new like this to look forward to, hooray!
It got my brain a-turning (which is tricky for this early in the morning, luckily I just started drinking my yummy latte) for what to do to feature short stories in my blog for the month. Unfortunately I don’t read many short stories. Whomp whomp. But this month gives me an excuse to change that! So I think that plan is that tomorrow after work I’m going to run to the bookstore (a dangerous place, I know) and pick up a good volume of short stories. I’ve been meaning to do this anyway so…
And I need to go run errands tomorrow regardless because I’ll be going out of town Thursday to
for 4 days. Yeah that’s right. I’ll be gone Thursday through Sunday so don’t expect any posts from me in that time. It’s okay, you can be sad about it. You can even cry. I won’t judge you ;) NEW ORLEANS
So, to sum up, in honor of Short Story Month I’ll be buying a volume of short stories to read and I’ll be trying to read at least one new short story per week and then give you a good little review on my blog. The review probably won’t be the same in-depth awesomeness that you’re used to though since I’ll see be posting my regular book reviews as well, but I’ll see what I can pull off (I’m only human!).
Oh, and if YOU want to post about Short Story Month on Twitter, be sure to use the hashtag #ssm2011.
