A Story a Day in May

Thanks to Janel at Janel's Jumble, I learned about the Story A Day challenge at The challenge is to write one complete story every day in May.

When I first read about the challenge, I thought it sounded like a great idea, but also thought it seemed totally overwhelming. I didn't think it was anything I would actually try, but I decided to take a look at the website anyway to check it out. I signed up for the newsletter, and gradually became more intrigued by the challenge the more I read about it. It seemed like a great way to get more practice writing, and also to meet more writers and participate in the StoryADay community.

I've decided now to give it a try, and will sign up to officially participate once the sign-ups are open for this year. I realized the worst that can happen is I can't come up with enough stories, so there's really nothing to lose. And in the best case scenario, I will end up with 31 stories at the end of the month.

I've become totally addicted to writing prompts, so I figure this is a great opportunity to use them. The administrator at StoryADay posted some links to great sites for writing prompts here, so I'm looking forward to exploring those sites.

I'm anxious for May, and eager to see what the month will bring. I'm hoping it will bring a lot of fun, a minimum of stress, and at least 31 new stories!
