I’ve done a lot of writing over the years but the form has shifted. I wrote hundreds of songs and poems throughout my 20’s, then a bunch of technical writing and blogging on the tech industry for work starting in 2010, and now I find myself writing a lot of short stories for practice setting scenes while I work on my novel. Up until recently though, this site has been almost exclusively tech industry blogging. I think it’s about time that changed.
Starting this Friday at 9am I’m going to post a short story every week. Some no more than a few lines, some much longer. The first set of stories all deal with family and looking for meaning but don’t be surprised when I start adding other subject matter as well. At some point I’ll probably post scenes from the novel I’m working on, we’ll see how it goes.
I have the next 5 weeks all written and scheduled to go and will try to keep up the 1 a week schedule as long as I can – and as long as people keep reading! I’ll post reminders on Twitter every time a new story goes up with the hashtag #FictionFriday, if you like what you see please share and retweet. And if you’re not already following me on Twitter, what are you waiting for? I’m @JedWheeler – why not say hello?
