As we kick off 2020, we’d like to say a huge thank you to all those who’ve been following this blog over the last couple of years – your support, and in particular the feedback we’ve received is much appreciated.
When we started up the blog, we were looking to get into a good writing practice – we both respond well to a deadline, and are motivated by a commitment, even if it’s a virtual one. We’ve had a really great time, and are extremely proud of the innovations that we’ve come up with. The prompts based on Project Gutenberg titles feel particularly inspired!
But all good things come to an end…
Gotcha! Only kidding – sort of… Since we set the blog up we’ve maintained a schedule of a prompt, our stories based on the prompt, another story from each of us each month and another of our innovations, the #secondthoughts ‘essays’. We’ve been extremely lucky to get some contributions from various people along the way, but essentially all that writing has come down to us.
We’ve both seen some life changes over the last six months, and some of our priorities have changed a little bit. We’re still looking forward to sharing our work through the blog, but now seems like a good opportunity to revise the schedule a little bit.
Instead of our responses to the #FlashFiction prompts being posted on the Friday after we set the prompt, from next month they’ll become a normal Sunday posting, which will mean that we won’t be posting other stories as frequently. We’ll also be introducing a new range of reviews, focusing on the items that are on our resources page.
Hopefully you’ll still enjoy what we’ve got to say, and hopefully you’ll still feel like commenting!
David and Debs
