We’re declaring January Short Story Creation Month
The energetic start to the year is intended to foster a fun, creative beginning and forward momentum to launch 2021 forward together!
To add to the fun of it all there are several Twitch Writing Streamers who will be joining the challenge. We’ll be streaming writing, chatting, and conversation about writing. We are going to make this a fun, active month together!
For the month of January the goal is to create a short story every single day for the entire month. Much like creating a consistent creative flow in November, we’ll be doing that in January. Each short story will need to be between 1000 and 15, 000 words on any genre.
Starting the year off with energy and momentum is a great way to set your year on the right path. This isn’t a planned ‘New Years Resolution’. It’s a goal setting exercise for starting off the year strong. Let’s do it together!
As the Twitch Writers Community continues to grow and thrive, challenges are common. We’ve opted to give life to a challenge we’ve done before.
Join us in January to start the year off with 31 Short Stories – A Short Story a day is a huge boost in creative expression, back list growth, and new worlds to play in.
If you don’t hit 31 short stories, but you’ve been writing daily towards that goal you will end up with more stories than you began with.
Our general guide is
*1000 words to 15k words
*Short story in any genre
For myself, I will be aiming for 5000 to 10,000 words in each story daily. They become great fodder for collections, short story releases, and bonus stories.
1000 word short stories are GREAT for patreon supporters, book collections, bonus stories, and newsletter reader magnets.
