February is the shortest month

Filed in Being Silly, Writing

Even when it’s a leap year. And that’s why it’s now already March. Simply because February is the shortest month.

Don’t mind my silliness.

Earlier today, I saw a note from a friend on FB about getting together a reading group for A S Byatt’s Possession. I thought I was so smart when I replied “Persuasion was what persuaded me about A S Byatt’s wonderful-ness.” A while later, it occurred to me Persuasion is not the title of the book, but Possession. I went back and deleted the note, and later tweeted dunno what possessed me to write Persuasion instead of Possession by A S Byatt. Was trying to be funny and use the word “persuaded”. *blur*

I have various writing projects, including Panda Stories, a series of 20 stories based on 20 pictures, and A – Z, short notes on Facebook. So far, I’ve only written three of the 20 panda stories, and four of the alphabet notes. Panda Stories was “launched” on 20 December 2009 and the third story posted about a month later on 19 January 2010. The first of the alphabet notes, “Age”, was posted on 19 January 2010, and “Disorganised”, the fourth, on 23 February 2010.

Pretty pathetic output. Nevertheless, I’m feeling somewhat accomplished today, having written and posted a new story on The British Council’s A City of Shared Stories Kuala Lumpur site. I’ve posted various stories on that site, and should really include them in my recent writing output.

I’ll do better than that. I’ll post links to all my stories posted to date on that site.

Hmm, no stories posted in February? Well, it was a short month – the shortest month! – and just whooshed by.

Hopefully, I’ll maintain, if not increase, my writing output from now on.
