My name is Dianna Zaragoza, and I was a regular here in 2007 or 2008. Got a lot of good feedback and enjoyed helping others, so I'm hoping for more of the same.

My Facebook friends are not writers, and my co-workers are not writers, so I am starving for someone to talk to.

I'm in the middle of a personal challenge at the moment, something inspired by my 'poppa' Ray Bradbury before he died. He challenged writers to read and write a lot of short stories in order to sharpen their skills.

So my challenge is to write 52 short stories in 1,000 days (about 3 years). His challenge was to write a short story a week for a year, but I'm just not that fast, plus I have a life I can't (i.e. don't want to) utterly abandon to write. I'm giving myself a little more time than that. I'm blogging about it here:

So far (day 36 today) I've written three short stories - one horror, one supernatural, and one that's not so much a short story as it is a prequel of the magnum opus science fiction/romance novel I wrote myself for my 40th birthday present.

I would love to go professional when I'm good enough - but frankly, I'm a complete newbie at the business side of all this. There's lots to learn. Happy to be back. :P
