Story-A-Day Challenge

Story-a-Day May 2013 – Week 4 Update!

Sunday’s almost over by now, but I thought I’d drop by to update you folks on the fourth week of Story-a-Day May 2013.



Speculative fiction dominated the stories this week — 5 speculative and only 2 “general” or “literary” stories.  Most stories were around 1,500-2,00o words, with one around 600 and one of 5,100.

Last week I’d mentioned starting to feel the wear and tear of this challenge.  It’s definitely beginning to show, I believe, as quality diminishes in these stories.  Still — Story-a-Day has always been about quantity, as quality can always be adjusted later.

So…back to the details!



26 of 26 Stories Written

Week 4 Words Written: 15,551

Total Word Count (Month So Far): 71,227

Average Words Per Day (To Date): 2,740

Week 4 Story Titles:

  • Merfolk Justice
  • A Burst of Bubbles
  • Officer 310.83
  • Coming Home
  • The Souls Laced in His Shoes
  • Don’t Fear the Reaper
  • The Umbrella Knows Where Mommy Is


Word count for the week dropped by about 5k words.  I’m not that troubled about that though, just a sign of the challenge beginning to wear on me.

Thanks for stopping in!
