...that's how long there is until an anthology I want to write something for closes to submissions. I have a germ of an idea and three thousand words in notes (I actually thought I only had a thousand words until I checked the word count) most of which I'll throw away because they're thoughts in progress and things keep evolving.
I like that things are evolving. I just wish they'd evolve a little quicker. I also need to stop looking at my desk calendar and then twirling in my chair, eyes wide in fright.
Back in the heady summer of 2008, I wrote 4 flash stories and 6 short stories in my holiday from work (I assume it rained) - that is over 16 days - and although some were trunked (I shouldn't attempt tentacles or coffee) others sold to places such as Fantasy Magazine and Postscripts.
Thus, one story in sixteen days... Simple.
Okay, I need to check my calendar again.
