Story-a-Day 2014: Week 4 Review

Week 4 of the challenge is officially over!  Only six days remain in Story-a-Day May and I’m actually kind of happy about that!


This has been quite a grueling challenge, but the end is near and I’m really happy with a decent amount of my stories thus far.  One reader referred to yesterday’s story as ‘deep’ and ‘thoughtful’–which is everything I’ve been aiming for. Funny that I got that reaction out of a story I didn’t even plan or plot in the least.

Making certain to consume enough TV shows, movies and/or other forms of media has definitely helped with the writer’s block thing.  Also I’ve dropped some of my planning/plotting stages as I think it was wearing my brain out more.  Good for use in general, but at this point in the game, just not working for me.

So on to the stats!
