During 2020 I’ll be tackling these topics:
January – Habits – putting in place the behaviors we need to write
February – Romance – it’s not just for the ladies!
March – Show, Don’t Tell – the techniques you’ll need to master
April – Prepping – Introducing the WRITER Code
May – WRITE – The StoryADay May Challenge Daily Prompts (& cheerleading)
June – REFINE – Revision & Critique
July – IMPROVE – Using what you’ve learned & building on it
August – TRIUMPH – Celebrate every ‘tiny win’
September – ENGAGE – The StoryADay Challenge, redux – your second chance to write a story a day
October – REPEAT – How to stay in the writing game for the long haul
November – WRITE – Preparing to write through the change of seasons
December – REFINE – Looking Back, Looking Forward
Guest posters: I mostly have open slots for the Tuesday Reading Room posts and the Writing Prompts (either Write On Wednesday, or slots during the StoryADay challenges in May and September). I am actively seeking expert guest posts on the monthly themes, and podcast guests.
Check out this post for information.
I don’t accept guest posts unless you a, know the audience here at StoryADay.org really well and b, your article aligns with our creativity-first focus, and c, fits with the theme of the month. But I’m always willing to take a look at great content from highly creative writers, especially members of the StoryADay community (hi, guys!).
Short story writers: Don’t forget to declare your goals in the monthly SWAGr (Serious Writers’ Accountability Group) post and let the community keep you accountable.
Also, why not subscribe to the podcast, for prompts and pep talks?
