I would never ask you guys to do something I wouldn’t do.
Okay, I might.
But not about this.
You guys are supposed to be writing a story – a short story or part of a bigger novel, whatever – for the writing contest and anthology.
So I wrote one.
(A quick ad before I continue.)

Your amazing piece of writing could be the one to take the top prize and be published in in our horror anthology called “VOODOO.”
(Okay, I’m back – but you should totally enter that writing contest!)
In one day I wrote 4200 words of what I think is a pretty good short story.
But this is not about me bragging.
Okay, a little.
This is about YOU being able to create a great story yourself, and send it in to get into our contest and subsequent anthology.
Meanwhile, I’ve been supposed to be writing this murder mystery for a collection of whole books for a different anthology.
So I decided since it was almost due, I’d better start.
Here’s my progress so far:
|x||4201||short story for Voodoo July 1, all 4k|
|1||2142||July 2, 2018|
|2||1592||July 2, 2018|
|3||2233||July 3, 2018|
|4||2882||July 4, 2018|
|5||1801||July 5, 2018|
|6||1922||July 6, 2018|
|7||1335||July 6, 2018|
|8||1383||July 7, 2018|
|9||1539||July 7, 2018|
|10||1797||July 8, 2018|
I have about 18,626 words of the story written, and I want it to come in around 65k, so I’m about 29% of the way done, with about 29% of the month of July gone (as of when I created this blog post, which was the morning of July 10). What do you think?
Right on track! Not bad!
And who knows, I might get on a streak.
The thing is, this is going to be a whole book, in an anthology with a bunch of other whole books. Like 25 or more.
If you want to preorder the whole book anthology, it’s called Death and Damages and it’s on sale in preorder for $0.99 right now. My book alone is worth that! This thing is a steal!
Order your copy today and I’ll post periodically about my progress.
Feel free to cheer me on and to enjoy Death And Damages when in gets released!

Yes. We should start to write no bother how much words are these.
So, I’m guessing you can’t order a physical copy of this book . . . because that would be kind of insane.

You know, I’m not sure how that works. I’m inclined to agree; they probably don’t do a paperback version. (Can you imagine? It’d look like a phone book!)
