Daily Grind – Showcasing Your Star

Yesterday I talked about dreams, and how they inspire the stories that slip out of ones mind and onto the paper in front of you.

Today, I want to touch a little on how another’s work can inspire. I know I mentioned fan fiction the other day, but this is deeper than mer fan fiction, this has to do with one of the surprising things I’ve found since going over the different ways Matthew presented my work to you, is that of the 50 word stories, and how they insipired some people to expand upon the stories themselves.

It’s humbling to think words I wrote somehow inspired others to build a world separate from where the original story dwelled in, and, in some instances, the stories were far superior than the original the words were taken from.

That being said, I’d love to see others try their hands at reshaping each of the 50 word stories, so if over the course of the next few weeks, as I write new original stories that utilize the original 50 word stories, you find a story that inspires you to write, please write, write your bloody arse off, then, let me know, because I’d love to showcase your story on the blog.

Quick Fix Short Stories

I am using this site to post very rough drafts of my short stories, flash fiction, and books. I hope you enjoy them but I also hope you take the time to give feedback on what needs improvement. Please feel free to be critical but not mean. All the help anyone could offer would mean the world to me so feel free to comment what you like, dislike, additional ideas, something you'd like to see in the story. Who knows if I ever get published I'll mention you in blurb at the beginning thanking everyone who helped me along the way. Thanks!
