A Story a Day in May

I've gone and done it. Thanks to Elizabeth, I've signed up to A Story a Day in May. I've been enjoying Write1 Sub 1 so much, that I thought I'd go to the extreme.

A Story a Day in May, well it does what it says on the tin. A story: you decide how long every day. I've had a little practice today. Ah, these self-imposed challenge, the funny thing is they seem to work. I felt, anxious today, I had a real sense of needing to get thing written. I managed a flash (1000 words almost complete, and 2000 words towards tomorrow's story).

This is fun.

  2. Ahem, it's not a blogfest. It's a, I don't know, a challenge. We're our own task masters. I find these challenge intriguing.

    I challenge you, Rogue Mutt, to write a story a day. It's hard. C'mon. Get 30 stories to be submitted in May, woudln't that be cool?

  6. Well done Deborah - I did Story A Day last year and, obviously, W1S1 this year. I don't think I'm going to attempt both though! Respect is due. At least you don't have to worry about W1S1 in May : do Story A Day and you've automatically got W1S1 covered!

  7. Sylvia and Milo, come on in, the water's lovely.

    Michael and Trisha -- mad isn't it? The stories can be as small as you want, though.

    Simon, how did you find it, last year?

  10. Hi, Cate and Rach, -- Story a Day is creeping up on me. I've got a plan-- a list of venues for the first 15 days. I actually feel nervous, it could end in tears, but what the hey.

  12. I'm completely failing Write1Sub1, mostly because I've been submitting stories something like once every two months. But I have been writing - partly because my professors make me, too - and I think just writing will get me motivated.

    That is a very roundabout way of saying I'm going to say I'm going to do this, and then fail miserably as I watch you succeed fabulously. It's always nice to have such a good role model! =)

  13. Go, Debs! I'm searching for something more insightful to say, but i got nothing :D

    Write hard! May your daily stories lead to daily glories. Or something less corny.

  18. This sounds great. If I weren't in the thick of revisions, I'd take part in the story a day challenge. It's such a great way to focus our creativity.

  19. I am seriously failing the Story a Day. I'm inspired, but life is crazier than normal right now.
