One Million Project’s Fantasy Anthology

One Million Project’s Fantasy Anthology

The recent publication of the three-volume short story anthologies from the One Million Project was the culmination of over a year and a half of work and coordination of over one hundred writers, editors and publishing professionals. Each week, I will highlight each of the anthologies to give readers a taste of how fabulous these books are.

Our Fantasy volume presents a variety of genres including Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and PhotoFunia-1517875727 (1)Supernatural Fantasy.  Each story is of differing lengths and some authors have contributed multiple mini-stories so there are more than forty stories in this volume.

Find out what happens to Rachel when her long-time boyfriend leaves her for another man in S. Cinders’ story, Dragon or escape into a tale about what happens when the gods and goddesses create mischief in The Perfect Tree by Sarah A. Wilson.  Have you ever gazed in the mirror and questioned your life choices? Raymond St. Elmo will amuse your inner child with his Sci-Fi tale, The Girl Running Deep in the Sea of Glass.  Ready for some romance? Then you will love North Star by Gabriela Cabezut. Her story will have you wishing on a star hoping you will find your own naked man on a hilltop in Colorado!

 

I can promise you that One Million Project Fantasy Anthology has more than its share of stories of myth, fantastical creatures and the unexplainable.  Bringing writers from around the globe who present the reader with stories that provide the escape from reality every lover of the Supernatural, Fantasy and Science Fiction relish.

The beauty of these publications is two-fold — entertainment for the reader who will be helping to provide funding for Cancer Research UK and EMMAUS Homeless Programs through their purchase.

Cancer Research UK provides research which assists researchers, physicians, and medical centers around the world.  EMMAUS Homeless Programs can be found worldwide with over 330 centers that assist the homeless through job training and assistance to find jobs and places to live.

The One Million Project’s mission is to raise One Million Pounds for charity.  All proceeds from the sales of the anthologies (minus publication/shipping and handling fees) will be donated to the aforementioned charities.

To Schedule or Not to Schedule

To Schedule or Not to Schedule

Warmer temperatures, Daylight Savings Time and the urge to get back into the garden are all signs of the coming change of season.  Spring is around the corner.  Or at least, I’d like to think it is. My mind was racing when I should have been sleeping as I tried to plan out my Monday.

Honestly, I don’t know how all of the writers out there manage a full-time job, family, day-to-day tasks and getting words onto the page.  I’m retired, an empty-nester, and I don’t always find the time to sit down to write.  So last night, I tried to strategize what my scheduling priorities should include each day.

Don’t laugh those of you who miraculously navigate all of the issues, find time to write 5,000 words a day, and have abs of steel.  I hate clutter around me and find it difficult to concentrate if my space is in disarray.  I don’t even need to see the mess.  It can be anywhere in my home, and I enter into a creative catatonic state where I can barely write a coherent Facebook post.  I know…I’m challenged by minutiae. Does this mean that I clean regularly? No. I wouldn’t have a mess if I were on top of my housekeeping.  That is why I decided to schedule.

For years, I have saved pins on Pinterest about cleaning and organization.  If you have been on Pinterest, I’m sure you have seen the meticulous schedules created by the organized among us to help the unorganized. I believe they are all written for me, personally. Somewhere out there, these wizards of time-management have a poster on the wall of their neat-as-a-pin laundry room that features a photo of me surrounded by mountains of laundry and piles of paperwork, looking frazzled and sporting a not-so-trim waistline.  I write fiction, so cut me a break if I tend to exaggerate…

Let me get back on track. I sat down with a pencil, a notepad and my cell phone. After about twenty minutes working on my goals, I’d come up with my schedule.  I’ll try it for a week or two, see how it works for me, and make changes, if necessary.  I started my new schedule immediately. And look! I’m writing this blog.  I guess I’m off to a good start!
