I've been thinking about a way to make sure I am consistently writing something, and it's hard because usually I need something to help me keep focused on task. Usually that involves an end goal or an incentive.
At the same time I am interested in economics and the now changing economy, how the idea of the "middle man" is slowly fading in certain industries, including the publishing industry.
On top of that, I still have the universe of DeWitt in Titania dancing around my head. And I want to play with is.
So now I have an idea: A blog that pays for each short story!
It's a little experiment that will keep me either preoccupied writing or preoccupied with economic questions to ponder.
I would start a blog associated with a PayPal account. For every $5 (or whatever fee I decide later) I receive, I would write a short story that I would post on the blog. Of course, I would start one for free, and then see what happens. The stories would all be set in the same universe, but not following the same characters. And requests here and there would be allowed.
This may not be big, but it's something I'm pretty interested in. Of course, I would like to see what you dear readers think. Opinions? Suggestions?
