Just thought I'd make a new blog entry, since I've apparently been doing one a week or so thus far this year. I think? Anyway why not keep up with that trend?
An idea I thought of earlier this week was to do something I call, "ShoStoWriMo". Now, very likely this acronym already exists on the Internet somewhere, and maybe you can guess what it stands for: Short Story Writing Month. I'm not joining in any pre-existing challenge (again, I'm sure there is one), but rather giving one to myself. The challenge: write 4 short stories in a month, one per week, and publish each of them regardless of quality / whether or not they're actually complete.
The idea behind this challenge is simply to get me to write a story and post it online. I've written / started far too many things that I say I'll post but never do. So this time, I have to - even if I don't end up finishing a story. My target month for this is April, but I may push it back to May - we'll see. I just wanted to throw it out there.
There's not too much - except it's All-Star weekend here in Ottawa. I really wish I had tickets to see the game, but I will have to settle for watching it in HD at home (because I just got HD, you see, only a month after getting an HDTV). If I can I will also record the skills competition, but that is depending on whether I can get my technology to cooperate with me (I don't have a PVR with my HD box, but I do have a DVD-R).
As a result my podcast this week will be peppered with random All-Star game trivia. Now I have to go and research some of this trivia while also picking music. What have I gotten myself into?
