We Actually Made It

On April 4th, 2014, I wrote the first in a planned series of 365 short stories, each one exactly 365 words long, each written in less than 24 hours.

It’s been a year since then, and I am happy to announce that I did, in fact, write 365 stories in as many days.

Some jerks have been asking me:  “If you’ve written so many, how come you’ve only given us 120+ stories to read for free?”  More on that below.

Lots of other jerks have been asking me:  “What now?”  IS NOTHING ENOUGH FOR YOU PEOPLE.

I guess not.  And, to be honest, it’s not enough for me, either.  On April 5th, 2015, I wrote “Day 1 – When On The Eve Of Resurrection,” the official start to Year Two.  As for Year One, I’ve started submitting stories to various journals and magazines, because apparently you need to get published before you can get published, but if you’ve been published before, no one will publish you.

(Basically this means that a magazine has to print your short story so you’ll be attractive to book publishers, but if you’ve published your stories online, no one will re-publish them in a publication.  That’s why I stopped posting the daily entries over 200 days ago.)

Hopefully someday we turn this whole thing into a giant book, then I become a billionaire, and I get to reenact the opening of Duck Tales for my own amusement.

Until then, if this is your first time checking out the project, welcome.  Click around and see if anything entertains you. (A few of my favorites are The Seance, The Burning House, The Sword, The Fantasy Reality Show, and The Butterfly Dance.)  If you’ve read all 120+ entries here, um… I don’t know.  Hopefully I’ll have something you can pay me money to hold in your hands before I’m dead or the internet collapses in the inevitable Robo-Revenant War of 2065.

I do not own the rights to Duck Tales – they’re held by Disney. Hell, I don’t even think I own the VHS anymore.
