Ali: I did a lot of stuff this week. I went on three hikes, I made muffins, I went on a food tour, I turned a year older, and I mostly kept up with the chain. I gave myself two days off for the holiday weekend/my birthday. But, I also finished transcribing Chapter 2 of the Sleeping Beauty project and sent it off to Jenny for her to take a look at. I also wrote about 2/3 of a new short story which I’m writing as an exercise in starting with a bad situation, then escalating it. Even with two days off, I’m pleased with how the past week has gone.
Jenny: Happy Birthday to Ali!
I’ll keep it quick, since this is posting so late (my bad). Good news: my chain continues to grow!
1. Finished rewriting a chapter of La Llorona.
2. Am halfway through a short play I’m working on for a local theatre festival.
How are y’all doing?
Jenny writes dark fiction that her mother hates. Her stories and essays have appeared in Across the Margin, Pantheon, Shimmer, Black Denim Lit, Skive, and others. When she’s not writing her own stuff, she’s reading mysteries for Criminal Element. When she’s not writing fiction or reviews, she’s writing/directing/performing/designing plays at Springs Ensemble Theatre.
