Nancy m. long
Hello and welcome to my first blog.
I created this website and started publishing my short stories as a way to motivate myself to write more. I've never needed a reason but this gives me more structure and deadlines to work around.
And while I work on the craft of writing I want to be able to share my process and background into the stories with you. I want to invite you into my mind for a while.
I'll be including things like spotify* playlists compiled as background music that helped shape stories and pictures and clips on tumblr that helped inspire stories or themes in my writing. I'll also include things that I enjoy that run along the same themes.
I'm going to be publishing my short stories on Amazon.com in singles and bundles. I don't expect much to happen. I'm just living the dream. The dream that if I write enough, one day someone will give me money. And perhaps someday after that I might make enough to cover rent, and on that day I shall declare myself a successful writer.
While I wait I have several novels and novellas that I am working on, some of which will likely be talked about in future blogs. I enjoy writing short stories. But for some of my longer stories there's a different kind of love that goes into it. Unfortunately it makes it a much slower process as everything has to be perfect.
My goal is to post bi-weekly. The post will be extra information and background involving the story just published. Initially stories are going to be sold for $0.99 in Amazon, Smashwords and Nook. But I also plan on regular free promotions which you can find out about in the newsletter.
Till next time...
*For the record, spotify is free to listen to if you download the app. The only difference in the free vs. the paid version is a lack of commercials. I'm not promoting them, it's just what I use.
