Introducing the Blogisode

Whew! Editing is hard work.

Thursday I’m launching a blog series based on my story “Pollywogging.” The series will be titled, “Tales from a Suburban Childhood.” I have a million of these stories. Since there are very few outlets for publishing this type of fiction, I feel my blog is the best place for them.

I’m calling them blogisodes. I’ve been working on it all week. Wow! Is it different having a short turn-a-round and knowing it will be out there.

As I worked on it, a high-bred format emerged that is part fiction and part script. Since I am putting this out there on my blog, why do the same way people could read in a collection of short stories. I don’t know if it’s going to work or not, but if you don’t take the chance, you never know.

It’s better to go down in flames than to be mediocre.

I decided to start it with the main character in third grade. I don’t know if that’s the strongest choice, but that’s what I did. I decided to set it in 1974 (my childhood) instead of the present. I have no idea who the audience is for this and I think this may be the answer to the no-sales question.

My original plan was to keep each blogisode to a 1,000 words, but 2,000 is a better word count for a story.

Please stop-by Thursday and let me know what you think!
