StoryADayMay: A Writing Challenge From Julie Duffy

An author by the name of Julie Duffy hosts a writing challenge in May, with daily short story writing prompts. This year, I decided to participate. Her prompts can be found at I will be sharing my daily stories here:

UPDATE: May is over, and I’m feeling pretty good about this accomplishment! I did miss a few days/didn’t finish the prompt, but overall I stuck to it and now I have some fun new stories! Some are definitely better than others, and all could use refining if not downright rewriting. Some are more suited to the recycling bin.
