In 2023 I’ll be using the I, WRITE framework to tackle these topics:

January Improve (your writing and your chances of getting published)
February Triumph (celebrating — and tracking — our successes)
March Engage (
April Imagine (gather Story Sparks AND visualize yourself as a writer)
May Write (theannual StoryADay May 2023 Challenge – prompts galore!
June Refine your stories (Critique Week returns!)
July Improve (incorporating rest into your practice)
August Triumph (Building positive feedback loops into your writing life)
September Engage (the importance of the writing community)
October Imagine (preparing for a big writing push, e.g. NaNoWriMo)
November Write (community support for your project and practice)
December Refine (reviewing what worked this year)

Guest posters:  I mostly have open slots for the Tuesday Reading Room posts and the Writing Prompts (during the StoryADay challenges in May and September). Check out this post for information on how to submit.

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!). Send me an idea, not a blanket “I want to write for you” message.

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?

Even better? Start writing now by taking the 3-Day Challenge
