Hello. It’s been a while. You’re looking good. Not that you looked bad before, just… um…
Happy New Year! Following absolutely no kind of traditional calendar, each first week of April, I begin a new year of this project. On April 3rd I closed Year Two, and the next day, I was opening up a new document and not quite believing that I typed the words “365 Year Three.”
It’s been a strange time. Year Two was full of ignorance and rejection – on the twin frontiers of publishing and common sense – but there’s plenty in Year Three that I’m looking forward to – personally and, hopefully, professionally.
Keep checking back. I may even post some more stories.

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.

As I’m posting my 33rd story here, I’ve actually just reached the milestone of having written 100 stories in as many days, and I actually took a moment to self-congratulate, as I rarely do.
