Stephen L. Thompson’s July 2012 Newsletter


Welcome to my electronic newsletter, covering July 2012.

My publication news for the past month:

Publication of my short story “Lucas Witnesses” on my Ficly profile.

This month I wrote 4,226 words, giving me a yearly total so far of 57,704.

Because I was traveling and didn’t have that much time to be on a computer, there were nine days in July where I did not write.  That means I only have five free, no-writing days left this year.  That means I’ll basically have to write every day for the rest of the year, which was the point of this exercise.

Here is my story board at the end of July:

When I started these newsletters, I figured if I included a story with each one it would make it more interesting as well as prompting me to write a story.  But over the years, it has become more of a burden with me either not having the time to write a story or forgetting.  Last month I said I needed to think on this, and I’ve decided to stop writing stories for my newsletter.  I will, in an attempt to keep these somewhat interesting, change over to writing haiku.  In the past, if I didn’t have a story, I’d whip out a haiku, so this isn’t an entirely new thing.
