Can you write 31 stories in 31 days?

http://storyaday.org does what is says on the tin although it only does it for the month of May. A bit like NaNoWriMo (http://nanowrimo.org) where your aim is to write 50,000 words in the month of November, which I’ve done three times, (or http://scriptfrenzy.org where you write 100+ pages of script, which I’ve done once), they encourage you to write a story every day in the month of May. So not long now before we can all have a go… in fact it starts tomorrow! More details on http://storyaday.org/storyaday-2010-factsheet.

Like most people, I feel that I don’t write enough and whilst I could cheat and write a piece of flash fiction on my busiest days, I’m always up for a challenge… so I’ll see you there.

    This comes just as I start a YA romance novel… Grrrrrr. Not sure if I’d be up for writing a novel, working on two other projects, then writing an extra story each day…


    Actually, you know what? Screw it. Thank you for posting this and letting me know about it. I think I’ll do it.

      Writing a novel isn’t easy but sometimes it’s good to have another distraction, especially if you want to leave it for a while so you get fresh eyes when you come back to it. You could compromise and aim for a 55/60-word story per day (or thereabouts). Just think how good you’d feel at the end of it; especially if you submitted some of the short stories and they were accepted. 🙂

        I’m having trouble joining… for some reason, it won’t let me log in to the page after signing up. Odd. I think I’m going to participate without actually participating. I’m going Kaufmanesque with this to the point of only doing it for myself. Still, thanks for posting this. I may have never thought of it on my own. 😉

    You’re so welcome. I’m glad you noticed it. I help out at a teen writing group at my local library every other Saturday afternoon and had to write a 28-word story today: which I managed, so that may be the way to go on the particularly busy days. 🙂

      lol, thanks. I got it working now. I have actually posted my first story. It’s a 2,169 word… cross genre… thing. I don’t know how to describe it, really. I’m posting them on my wordpress, then linking them in the victory dance group.
