Some of the places that love storyADay

"Now I have a community who understands my writing and my goals. I have a place to celebrate wins and to sympathize with the confusion and frustration of trying to create the writing life I want."
Marta Pelrine-Bacon
Writer & Artist
"Joining Superstars five months ago changed my writing life. I wake up in the morning excited. Not only am I writing more, I am writing with mindfulness and new skills I've learned at Superstars. Now I proudly tell people I am a WRITER."
Robin Stein
Writer
"I love Superstars! More than anything, it's a supportive, encouraging, non-judgmental group. We're all in the same boat, at different points in our writing journeys. No pressure (not much, anyway). It's very freeing to lurk & jump in when it feels comfortable."

Writing a story a day has been very good practice to develop a positive orientation to writing endeavors, not to mention that it has led me to meet new people, be part of a community and find my writing feet again.
