Such a Busy Month

March is a busy, busy month. One of the things that I am participating in again is what's called "Back 2 Middle Earth" of B2ME month. What we are doing this year is Bingo. Many cards were designed to give prompts for writing or artwork and each participant chose one or several or a lot of cards to play for the month. I was quite restrained and only chose eight cards. I have friends who chose many, many more than that. But if I get a number called that appears on several cards, I have my work cut out for me.

I can combine things, and I am doing so, but sometimes the prompts don't allow for easy combining. So, it started yesterday, on the first. I ended up with the number on five of my cards. I composed one story and am making two art pieces for the prompts. I am almost finished with the first art piece and halfway done with the second, it should be done by tomorrow am. Today is a little harder, though. The number was only on two of my cards, but...they aren't combinable and also don't lend themselves to art, so I'll have to write two fictlets on these. Not a problem, but a bit more work.

Last year I started B2ME month on the second or third day when the prompt really moved me to write something. It was the beginning of my writing and in the past year, I have written and posted 87 stories of varying lengths. I have three more that will be released later and one more longer piece that is in final revision stage. Not too bad for a year's worth of work.

So, if I don't respond to your questions during March, or am delayed in answering, I hope that you'll understand. I'm buried in creative pursuits for the month and happy doing them.
87! Wow! That's great, congratulations! :)))
Good luck with this years B2ME :)

And yes, march is a busy month. It is when pupils' competitions in astronomy are held; this year, I am a mentor of four pupils, so I have a lot of work to do. But it is also fun. :) I love those competitions and I love spending my time with the young. :)
I remember last year's competition. You had a great time mentoring everyone even though you were stressed out about whether the applications or forms had been sent appropriately. Have fun!

I think I have done at least four or five stories. More than some years and less than others. (I think two of mine might have been pretty good.)

I'd say that more than a couple of yours are pretty good :-) Just because I'm prolific doesn't mean that I'm anywhere close to your level of expertise. It just means that I'm continuing to practice :-)

I'd go for all of them. You are on my Delicious list, you know!
87? Pretty good :D I have had a lazy few months not writing very much at all. When the tennis elbow goes I will be back with a vengeance!
Well, a lot of those were drabbles, and 31 of them were from last year's B2ME. But I do try to write at least one thing a week to keep practicing.
