Ray Bradbury 52-Week Writing Challenge – Week 4

Challenge Overview

The fourth of fifty-two short stories completed! 

My fourth story for this challenge started as a dramatization of the backstory for a D&D character I wanted to create. But it morphed into something more during the creation of the story area document. Even though I think it is going to take some work to refocus the story in a few areas on things more president to the theme, I am rather happy with how this short story of 7,504 words turned out.

Onto the next story!

Ray Bradbury 52-Week Writing Challenge – Week 3

Challenge Overview

The third of fifty-two short stories completed! 

My third story for this challenge got away from me word-count-wise as it ended up being a novelette finishing at 13,810 words. It is a dramatization of the backstory for a Non-Player Character (NPC) that showed up in the Dungeons & Dragons game I run for my friends. It was a challenge to put together the narrative, and I discovered a number of things about the protagonist in writing this first draft that’ll be fun to smooth out in future drafts.

Onto the next story!
