Last week, as all of you were busy recognizing all your many blessings, quietly, Courage 2 Create finally reached its first 1,000 subscribers.
More than a year ago, I challenged you to help me get 1,000 subscribers. I promised to share a short story written by me in return for your help.
Well, today we’ve reached that goal.
I cannot describe how happy I am that we have reached this goal together. I would say thank you, but the words “thank you” are really no longer enough. There are no words to describe how thankful I am to you, and how influential each of you has been to my life.
Today, I celebrate this victory with you not by writing a very long post on how I got my first 1,000 subscribers. (I’ve already done something like that already—and there really is nothing more to add.)
No, today I celebrate with you by sitting back, tossing a log in the fireplace, and telling you a story.
My Last Featured Short Story
Since the very first year of the C2C, I’ve shared original short stories with you, written by me, on my blog. I’ve called these stories “Featured Short Stories.”
Today, I’m sad to say that, although this won’t be the last short story I’ll ever write, it’ll be the last short story I’ll be sharing on this blog.
Well, it’s because I’m getting close to wrapping up my novel and, from now on, I want to focus all my “fiction writing energy” solely on my novel. As you know, my novel is my One Dream That Matters, and it’s currently my highest priority.
So, to allow me to focus more on finishing the novel, there won’t be anymore of these types of challenges in the future, and there will be no more featured short stories on the blog. (Although, in the future, I may release an eBook with a collection of the short stories that I’ve shared with you in the past.)
But, for now, this will be the last featured short story that I’ll be sharing on my blog.
I hope you enjoy it.
Editor’s note: this short story is no longer available online. (In the future, I may put all the short stories I shared this blog in an eBook. So, stay on the look out for that.)
