Ok. So I have this problem.
If you have read the About section of this blog, you know that I have set a series of rules regarding my unfolding story that still uses the working title of “2010 story”. The format is set at 1,000 words a week.
Unfortunately, for a few weeks now, Cassidy has been wanting to have more and more space. What I planned to be one post hardly fits in 1,000 words. At the same time, just splitting it in half doesn’t cut it: each half wouldn’t be strong enough to endure the week between them.
I also looked at my readership’s ebb and flow. I realize that one post a week isn’t enough of a hold to bring most people back.
So I’m left with this question: should I double the amount of content, effectively posting two 1,000 words snippets a week?
It solves all the problems! Or does it?
See, there is this nagging concept of time: there is only so much in a week. Can I maintain the new rhythm without compromising my other projects?
I don’t have the answer. What I think I’ll do is try it out and see if it works. If it’s not too much of a strain, I’ll officially amend the rules of my personal challenge. If requires bigger a chunk of my time than I can afford, I’ll rework my story’s parceling to fit it into the original format.
In any case, you’ll have a snippet tomorrow. 😉
