Here is a new project I started awhile back, of writing a short story every day, around 800 words, with a very minimal amount of editing. I then take each, format them into little 8 page booklets, and sell them in groups! Sounds fantastic, doesn't it?

Here is the stack of the first 40. Woof. I have to figure out a way, sooner than later, to sell these in a more sensical way. But! That's for another night, for now, here's the first 40! Sorry they're getting a little expensive, they're 5 for $1, which is basically just enough to defray printing costs. Maybe I'll have to make them E-stories....

1 - A Sneeze in the Face
2 - Job Interview
3 - He's a Good Boy
4 - At a Loss
5 - Today Terrific
6 - A Night with Luigi
7 - Spider Bite

27 - Constructionist Philosophy Pt. 1
28 - Constructionist Philosophy Pt. 2
29 - LD and ZE are WA Scene 1

32 - Old Hag
33 - List of Likes and Dislikes
34 - Denise Gess
35 - Pete's Sexuality
36 - Chamberpot
37 - A Hope for a New Mankind
38 - Sixteen 50 Word Stories
39 - Paradoxical
40 - Sitting with an Alien, Watching Paul Rudd, and Discussing my Girlfriend

These were written between 7/25/10 and 9/2/10. They normally take about half an hour to an hour to write, depending on how motivated I am, and how distracted I get. All the editing that goes into them is a quick read over as I format to make sure I didn't spell TOO many things wrong.
