Fifty for Fifty

The Indoor Writer has just hit 45. 45 pieces of short fiction published, that is! Now she's aiming to have 50 pieces published before two months from today. Why? Because in exactly two months she'll reach her own half century milestone.

Okay, so over forty stories published doesn't come close to her writing chum's achievement of >100 stories sold (yes, it's that Wendy Clarke again), but you have to aim for something.

I like Wendy because she always invites me to her book launches and let's me root around to snuffle up the crumbs - writers are so messy ...

So, the countdown to 50 begins here. Only 5 stories need to get published ... will she do it?

  4. Best of luck with this Tracy.
    It's excellent to have a goal.
    Keep us posted on your progress. I have every confidence you'll do it.

    PS: 50 and beyond is great.

  5. Good luck Tracy! You can do it! I'm 50 in three and a half weeks. Not much chance of me having 50 stories published by then!

    1. Ha-ha, Alison. You can be my official scout and report back when you reach the milestone!

  6. 50s are fab in all respects. But excuse me, LitPig but I do believe you were banned from any future launch partis after your behaviour last time! (Tracy is still guest of honour of course).

    1. Thank you for pointing that out, Wendy. LitPig has no recollection of any bad behaviour ... What can you do?

    1. Thanks, Kate. I hasten to add it took >5 years to publish the stories ... so not sure if 50 is feasible in the timeframe but what the heck - have to aim for something! x

    1. Thanks, Rosemary. Now worried I've probably jinxed this by blogging about it!
