Stephen L. Thompson’s October 2011 Newsletter

Posted in Newsletter, Stories, Website, Writing on October 31, 2011 by oneoveralpha


Welcome to my electronic newsletter, covering October 2011.

My publication news for the past month:

Publication of my stories “Failure to Communicate,” “Planning Ahead,” and “The Horror” on my Ficly account.

Acceptance of my story “Enigma” by Books To Go Now.  I’ll let you know when it will be available.

* * *

This month I wrote 5,904 words, giving me a total this year of 41,595.  I hope I can make it to 50,000 by December 1st.

Here is my story board at the end of October:

One change is that I’m visiting friends this week, so I had to take the picture a couple of days ago.  Since then, I’ve received a rejection from The Martian Wave for “Exodus.”  I guess better luck next time.

Instead of a story, this month I wrote an haiku.  Enjoy.



all the time falling
rain – leaving everything damp
why I stay indoors


40,000 Words!

Posted in Writing on October 13, 2011 by oneoveralpha

As of this morning, I’ve written 40,089 words so far this year!  Back when I hit 30,000 words on August 18th, I figured that at the rate I was going I’d hit 40,000 words on October 13th.  Hopefully, now that things are starting to settle down, I will be able to spend even more time writing.  So I shouldn’t have a problem hitting my goal of 50,000 words by the end of the year.  In fact, I will challenge myself to hit that mark on December 1st.  If I can keep up my latest rate of writing, that won’t be a problem.  The only issue is, can I keep up my latest rate of writing?  You’ll have to check back to see.
