There's just been a writing exercise over at Evil Editor and I enjoyed submitting a distorted fairy tale. This is in contrast to my "novel", if that's what it is, which has stalled.
Writing short pieces is good fun and maybe that's what I need to prime the pump. I think a little bit of me is worried I'll take my novel in the wrong direction, whereas the pressure is off on a 250 word exercise. I think my inner editor must be due for a holiday.
It's fun sharing what I've written too. With a novel, sharing too much too soon seems to be counterproductive as folks want to tell me where to take it next. With a short piece it just doesn't matter.
If you're lucky (or possibly if you're unlucky) I may post my piece on here. I'm not sure if it will make sense to anyone who hasn't found Evil Editor though.
