I’ve been participating in the Story a Day May and September challenges since two years now. And similar to how I fared with my last two NaNoWriMos, I always start well, and then somewhere down the line, lose focus and forget to keep up. Last time I participated, I managed to write 15 out of 30 stories, some alright and some awful I think 😀
What is Story a Day?
Story a Day is a writing challenge that was started by Julie Duffy (you can check out her website here), to encourage writers to write more and build a sustainable writing practice. She sends out a prompt daily, if you subscribe for the challenge, for the whole month. You can go away and write your story, and choose to publish it on your blog or any other platform or just share them with the other participants on her website. and the best part is, the prompts and the challenge is FREE!!!
Story A Day Super Stars:
This time, I’ve gone a step ahead and made this serious for myself. I’ve invested financially to hold myself accountable to write more, and hopefully in the process, learn more. So I’ve signed myself up for the Super Stars group!! I’m nervous and excited at the same time and I have no idea if I’ll be able to stick to this, but I really want to. I know I’ll give it my most sincere shot for sure.
That probably means less Netflix and more writing..heh heh 😀
So, wish me luck guys! And if you’re participating in the Story A Day challenge too in May, do let me know how its going. I’d love to read your stories if you want to share them with me too 🙂 And maybe, I will share some of my stories here on the blog, from time to time 🙂
