Pride is a variety streamer who tends to do more demystifying and education about their animal companions than actual writing most times. They take great enjoyment in writing for the pleasure of it and often tend to pursue stories and adventures that are fantastical or magical in nature. While they don’t have anything available in print just yet, they’re working hard on making serial stories available soon!
What do you stream?
I stream mostly games, sometimes animals, and of course writing. My favorite genres are anything that loosely encompasses Fantastical settings and usually a lot of mythology and magic.
How long have you been streaming?
Several years off and on
How do you keep your viewers engaged?
I ask chat for their opinions on what to explore next, or how their own writing progress is going.
What is your favorite thing about streaming?
Being able to share my ideas and writing with the wider world, in real time.

As a writer and a streamer, I can tell you following will be fun.
Round 3 of 31 Short Stories in 31 Days just keeps getting bigger. Have you followed the #31s31d hashtag? Or the #31d31s? Both will start getting busy in the next few weeks. If you haven’t signed up yet you can do that from the 31-Stories page on this site. The fun is just beginning.
The discord is being revamped for function, but I’m hoping we’ll be able to get an updated design at some point too. There’s a lot going on. Our streamers are setting up their 31 stories stream overlays or backgrounds. Our writers are sharing the commitments in the participant chat, so we can all work together for accountability and support. Many of our short story support team will be lurking during the month to answer questions, be available on discord, and on the website while offering support throughout the month.
This is going to be the biggest short story a day event yet! Have you joined us? We’ll have a lot of activity on July 24th at 5p ET on my twitch channel – HTTP://twitch.tv/theladywrites
Maybe we’ll do a challenge accomplished feature during the June MEGA event. That is happening June 24th, 2022. If you need to know more about Writer’s Conduit check out WritersConduit.com and see the highlights from this past year!
We’ve done it before and we’re doing it again.
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.
