Stephen L. Thompson’s January 2012 Newsletter
Welcome to my electronic newsletter, covering January 2012.
My publication news for the past month:
Publication of my stories “Worth a Million” and “I Wouldn’t be Surprised” on my Ficly account.
* * *
This month I wrote 7,538 words. In order to reach my goal of 80,000 words this year, I need to write – on average – 6,667 words a month, so I’m well on my way to reaching my goal.
Also, as I mentioned last month I want to write every day, but I will give myself twenty free days where I don’t write. I wrote all 31 days in January, so I still have those twenty days.
As I mentioned in a blog last week, I’ve also started working on my novel None of Them Knew the Color of the Sky. I’ve set the goal of writing a chapter a week, and two-and-a-half weeks in I’ve written two-and-a-half chapters, so I’ll be letting you know how that goes as well.

Here is my story board at the end of January:
My hope is to wipe several of those stories off the board this year, meaning, having them published.

I meant to write a story this month, that was something I wanted to work on, but I never got around to it. So instead, I wrote another haiku. Enjoy.
first snow, then sunshine
then more snow, more sunshine – this
winter is messed up
