It's really starting to feel like an actual series of books: the Sufi book is the new one.
The fact that the publishing went smoothly even during the school year made me more confident about doing a book of microfiction by people in the class this semester, so I'll start promoting that idea next week, and then really focus on the idea in Week 10 when there is that Microfiction Story Lab option. So, I need to make it my goal to set up a Google Form for people to start submitting their microfictions; I'll try to get that ready by Week 10. And I can start sharing more microfiction examples in the announcements too; maybe I will start doing that later this week after I get the Google Form set up/
I already got some really enthusiastic feedback at Twitter already from an ed tech person whom I respect very much. The Tiny Tales project is something I would do just to please myself (every single aspect of doing these books is a pleasure, which is not something I can say of other writing projects I have done in the past)... but of course it feels even better if the books can be useful to others.
And I am sooooooo psyched to start writing Mahabharata stories for NaNoWriMo. I have no idea how I will find the time, but that's always the case with NaNoWriMo: it seems impossible until you do it and realize that, hey, it really is possible. And it will be a GREAT distraction in November because I do not want to stress myself reading election results. Instead, I will WRITE. :-)
