  1. Well, I combined a Poem-a-Day prompt for a story poem and my Story-a-Day warmup and came up with something that might be one or the other, or both, or neither. But at least I wrote it and it feels substantive. Hope it passes muster, Story-a-day gang.

  2. Just finished my warm up story. Clocked in at just under a 1000 words. Started out with a character that had a strange fesish of amputating people. Strange I know. I wrote about a character from a story I’d read and I wrote it from the victim’s point of view instead. What a blast. It was a sick story but it was fun.

  3. I’m writing away in the final week of Poem-a-Day April right now. Then I get tossed into the deep end of Story-a-Day May. I guess there’s no shallow end, is there? I’m always pleasantly surprised by the creativity (and most of the stories, too) I am able to push out from your prompts and with that tick-tick-tick (and calendar flip) timer going during May.

    I hope I’m ready, Julie.

    ~ Best wishes, Joe Hesch
