Beware the Ides of August (aka Challenge Time)

Right I need to start kicking my own ass if I am ever to be a successful writer.  I'm finding it difficult to get anything done and very easy to get distracted at the moment.  True, the move to the new cottage hasn't really been conducive to a creative environment but that's not really a good enough excuse.  I have to admit that I miss my weekly writing get together with my dear friend and muse Cherie.  The challenges we would set each other was a fantastic motivator.

That is why I am going to set myself a challenge.  Over the month of August I am going to write at least one short story a week.  If at the end of the week I have succeeded, I shall reward myself with something delicious.  Probably a trip to the chippy (my favourite thing).

I know it's still July but as there are only a couple of days left I'm going to start today.  By the end of the week you should see a post on here with a link to the completed version of At Sleeps Twilight Gate.

All ahead Mr Sulu, warp factor six.
