I Write a Story a Day

I write a story a day based entirely on a different image served up every day by a website (with Sundays off). Every day, no matter what, no matter the image.

I delight in the sheer terribleness of some of this writing. 

The point is it's writing. Consistently. Six days a week. No matter what. And most of that writing is god-awful. But almost every day there is a gem of a sentence or a glimmer of a better story, one buried far beneath. And at the end of a month I'll have 26 stories. Poorly written or not, that's an accomplishment, one from which great things can grow.

You can't edit a blank page, so a story a day it is.
