It’s here: the day you’ve been waiting for. Registrations are now open!
(If you have a username from a previous year, it should still work. Just sign in, above, and make yourself at home.)
What is StoryADay May?
It’s my challenge to you: to challenge YOURSELF to write every day, not “some day”.
Write and finish a story every day this May. That’s it.
Of course that’s not ‘it’, really. There’s a very welcoming online community I’d love you to be a part of, there are prompts, there is hand-wringing and high-fiving, and an amazing sense of discovery as you push yourself be a more productive, better writer.
Would You Like To Know More?
The Rules are here and there’s a nifty FAQ here, to tell you all about the StoryADay challenge, how to use the site, and where to get you awesome Participant Badge for display other places on the web.
If you would like to register a StoryADay/yourusername blog you can do so during registration. Because of Evil Spammers, however, I’ll turn this feature off when the challenge actually starts (I can only spend so many hours policing this).
So get your blog now if you want one.
Note: you do not have to have a StoryADay blog. Feel free to post about your StADa progress on your personal blog, on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, wherever you like to hang out. You’re more than welcome to simply get a username and drop in to the StADa forums and hang out.
I’ll be posting (optional) daily prompts at the site. You can find them on the home page. If you’d like to receive them by email every day, you can sign up for that here. You should, however, be coming up with your own ideas, too, because a lot of mine will focus on form or a particular technique, and you’ll still need your own Story Sparks for the content.
If you have questions, comments, concerns or find a bug in the site, please email me at julie at storyaday dot org.
I’m getting excited! How about you?
P.S. Do you have your complimentary Creative Challenge Workbook? Go through it now, to keep you fuelled up throughout May!
