Hey it's Saturday

Ya, it's a post title :P

I'm a bit behind again with my writing. Well sort of, I signed up for 4k of world building words for the April/May dare at FM. After doing so I figured that 1k a week would be good, and decided to write 250 words a day this week (I started a little late). With life going on I ended up not writing yesterday or Thursday, and only have the 400 some words I wrote Wednesday. If I want to do the 1k a week I have some ground to make up today. But the thing is I don't need to hit 1k a week for the challenge. I would like to get a decent amount of material decided on though for my SF mystery novel because I want to start revising it in May (I figure I can still world build for the dare in May with my fantasy novel).

I've also been wanting to do more critiquing for other writers. I'm in two groups right now, both of which are on the smaller side. A group started by a friend, and another group over at FM. I keep taking forever to get through crits, which have been short stories and flash (really short stories) fiction. In looking at various novel alpha/beta read requests I got to thinking, and made a realization. The majority of the time I spend with fiction either reading or writing is with novel length work, it's a format I'm comfortable with. Said realization, maybe as I get more used to giving critiques (or even various level of feedback) that working with a format I'm more familiar with would be a good thing. Sure, short stories don't take as long to read as novels do, but I know more about novel format then I do with the short stories.

That all being said I do want to do more short story work, and have been reading more of them (finished products in various online magazines) in an effort to be more familiar with their format. Well, and because it's enjoyable to read them.
