The Bradbury Challenge that I set up for myself was basically to write a story a week. Week #3 i started The Vase of Melampus. That turned out to be a really long story, and I spent week #4 working on it. Week #5 I went to Kill Devil Hills, NC for a week of vacation. Now it’s Week #6 and I’m going to wrap up The Vase of Melampus and start a new story.
This is a great challenge. It’s everything Bradbury said it was cracked up to be. Not only does it require discipline, it requires creativity and imagination galore — in fact I have absolutely no idea what the next story is going to be about. I got nothin’. I guess I’ll have to cruise over to Terribleminds and get some inspiration. Chuck’s always got a challenge going over there.
