Just posted a new short story: http://adamcopelandsite.com/other-writing/our-lady-of-dreams/
It is the product of a Northwest Independent Writer’s Association writing challenge. The challenge was to write a story of a supernatural event that happened to you. The catch, however, was that the story could be fact or fiction. In effect, it was a sort of “campfire” tale involving yourself. What do you think? Did this happen?
What is Northwest Independent Writer’s Association? It is a group I help start to help indie writers with every aspect of the writing process, from pen-tip to publishing. Part of that process is providing motivation to write, and then a place to show it off. For the time being we have a Google Group site until we have our own web-home. There, as well as a place to post your short stories, there are Writing Challenges. A member proposes an idea to write about and other members take it up and post their results. The challenge can revolve around an idea, a photo, song lyrics, or what-have-you.
Actually, that is the real reason I helped start the group: Laziness. I needed motivation to write more. Now I have deadlines and peer pressure to get stuff submitted. Damn. Out smarted myself.
So feel free to check it out. Maybe join. Who knows, maybe you need motivation too.
Hope you like peer pressure.
