31 Days Wrap Up

31 days Wrap Up! 

First off – everyone who took part successfully moved the needle on what they finished. This is huge for an author. Congratulations! You should be proud of yourself. I know I’m really excited for you. 

This last month at our weekly wrap-ups we did giveaways. 

The first week was an Edit – this edit is for a single short story during the month of September. That award went to MiyaWrites. You should visit her stream channel. You’ll love it there.

The second week was for a year subscription to 4TheWords – that award went to TheUniqueLee who kindly contributed some accountability tools for the whole team! Such a wonderful support gift. 

The third week was for a premade book cover from GoOnWrite.com – They are incredible cover designers. – Licia who creates really intense worlds, won the cover. I am going to enjoy seeing them released into the world. 

Our last award was a bundle of all three. That was awarded on the 31st to UncleToBen – he runs a family fun variety channel usually, but was happy to step in and do more writing streams than his usual once a week while he was accomplishing 31 stories in 31 days. 

All of our streamers have been wonderful. We can thank so many who stepped in and stayed on schedule for the event. Special mentions:

CoffeeQuills wrote without prompts, but created a full short story daily. 

Angsthase used the prompts, created a story a day, and filled in a lot of empty slots. Thank you for taking on so many extra hours!

Belldandy245 and MiyaWrites both stepped in to fill gaps and help ensure our 31 days authors could find a 31 days streamer during the day. 

NursingGeek was kind enough to begin her writing streamer career during the challenge to help keep the momentum going. 

We’ve got so many others I am likely going to miss in this blog post, but thank you all for streaming and chatting and writing at your pace. Every minute you shared this event, the community felt your support.

In the future- Watch for the InExhaustible Media Twitch channel and YouTube. We’ll have that in place before our next event in January. That’ll be where the whole 31 days streamers will be shared for all to see. Currently, the plan will include hosting a regular schedule video that will play the schedule of our known streamers and how to find them on twitch. It will also share some book trailers if you’re looking for a good book to read, and a variety of additional things to provide value to our writing community. 

For streamers, they can look forward to orientation some time in December to prep for the January event. That’ll be fun too. I’m looking forward to ‘meeting’ all of you in Discord before we start writing like madmen. 

Also watch for 31 Tales – a Charity Magazine filled with incredible writing for all to enjoy!

The fourth quarter is going to be amazing.

I can’t wait to share more with you as we go along. Keep Writing.

Diane Verrochi aka NursingGeek

Tell us a little about you:

I’m a geek, a writer, a gamer, a nurse educator, and sporadic textile arts enthusiast. I’ve been writing since I was a kid, got put off it thanks to a creative writing professor who didn’t believe “genre” was real writing, and decades later got writing again thanks to the fanfiction community on LiveJournal. These days, I’m working on honing my craft to hopefully start putting some original stories out into the world. Some of my current influences are Mary Robinette Kowal and the rest of the Writing Excuses podcasters (Brandon Sanderson, Dan Wells, Howard Tayler, and their various awesome guests). On the gaming side, I lean towards open sandboxes like Minecraft and character-centric story games like Spiritfarer, or else extreme weirdness combined with weaponized kindness aka GISH (the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt). LGBTQIA+ health is my passion as a nurse and nurse educator, and that tends to come through in both my storytelling and my gameplay.

What do you stream? (or write in what genre)
I write mostly contemporary fantasy, and I stream a combination of writing and gaming. I’m just dipping my toes in as a streamer, so I’m not sure what the balance between the two will be yet.

How long have you been streaming?
Really just started today.

How do you keep your viewers engaged?
So far, thinking out loud as I write and keeping an eye on chat via my phone.

What is your favorite thing about streaming?
Interacting with other folks who enjoy similar things.

Where can people find you?
I’m not great with social media, but can sometimes be found on Twitter at @nursinggeek and Tumblr, also @nursinggeek.

Mar Qaroll – Qarollverse

Mar Qaroll, known as Qarollverse on Twitch, is a transmasculine author with a penchant for dark things. A metalhead, melanophiliac, and melomaniac, he sits hunched (tut tut) at his computer desk writing for hours upon hours from shortly after awakening to shortly before sleeping. He likes to say writing keeps him alive; he lives with MDD, major depressive disorder, and is open about his experiences and life.

Mar’s mother encouraged him to write even before he could make out the alphabet. He remembers scribbling in Disney Princess notebooks as if he could. He often says he was “born with a blank piece of paper and writing utensil in hand”. Despite this, his true writing journey only began in 2017 when he finished his first novel.

Being the only writer he knows offline, Mar has struggled with the loneliness and challenges as one for most of his life. Through streaming, he is no longer alone, and when he thinks he talks too much with his fellow writers, they assure him he isn’t every single time.

Outside of writing, Mar loves to inline skate, listen to metal music, and collect things he likes that are colored black.

What do you stream?

I write erotic romance, science-fantasy, paranormal and supernatural tales, psychological horror (or a darn good attempt at it, I hope!), and I love retelling classic or well-known stories in dark, twisted ways.

How long have you been streaming?

For about two years, I believe.

How do you keep your viewers engaged?

I talk with them!

What is your favorite thing about streaming?

Being surrounded by other writers and creatives!

Where can people find you?

My site (https://www.marqaroll.com/) has all my haunts where I can be found across the internet! I can be found on Discord (Mar Qaroll#187) nearly all the time, and I keep an eye on my Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/marqaroll), where I upload my stories.

When can people find you on Twitch?

I can be found on Twitch 7PM – 10 PM EST! Sometimes, just sometimes, I might go on for longer.

Miya aka MiyaWrites

Miya is an author and a freelancer in Ohio. Her streams include writing and editing her untitled collection of short stories which is set to release in December 2021. When she is not streaming or working on her latest crochet project (or spending too many hours browsing Etsy), she enjoys spending time with friends and family.

What do you stream? (or write in what genre)
I stream writing/editing/productivity sprints!

How long have you been streaming?
6 months.

Pride Ascending Fun, fantastic streamer!



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.

Where can people find you?
Pride Ascending on Twitch, Twitter, Instagram and World Anvil, PrideItUp on 4thewords

From your interviewer:
Pride Ascending has been a joy to watch on stream and enjoys an engaging chat, answering questions, and having fun. If you haven’t followed Pride on twitch don’t forget to visit HTTP://twitch.tv/PrideAscending

As a writer and a streamer, I can tell you following will be fun.

HFE Productions – Writing Streamer, Creative Spirit

I’ve been writing since I was at least 13. I grew up in a very conservative household, in a state with nothing to do, so writing it was! And lots of gaming lol. And art! At that age, a lot of it was writing down the adventures I went on with my imaginary friends; although there were certainly constructed characters as well.

I took writing, literature, and art classes all throughout high school. I didn’t pursue art classes in college due to money constraints, but I eventually got a B.A. in writing and wrote roughly 200 fanfics in the midst of all that. Now I’m writing + streaming original content, encouraged to do so by my friends.

But for a happy ending on the art front, I’m participating in Art Fight for the first time ever this year! I’ve already seen my art style grow by leaps and bounds through this event, and I’m excited to see what happens to my writing style through 31 Days of Short Stories!

What do you stream?
Writing. Often queer autistic fantasy, although I have done sci-fi as well. On occasion, I also enjoy sharing digital art streams.

How long have you been streaming?
I started this year! late April / early May specifically. I’m coming up on 100 twitch followers!

How do you keep your viewers engaged?
Most of my audience likes to watch the words go nyoom! So I make sure that they can see the words I’m typing. A lot of writing streamers don’t, and it’s one of my biggest turn-offs with writing streamers. Just because you can read it doesn’t mean that your viewers can, and it’s important to respond to what your audience needs.

What is your favorite thing about streaming?
Knowing people are there and care about the content I’m producing. Everybody puts a lot of time and energy into their craft, and some of us can’t wait and hope it pays off in the end. Some of us need support while we’re creating the thing, and having a live audience helps me in that regard.

Where can people find you?
My carrd has everything relevant to me. I would particularly like to highlight my twitter @hfeproductions, my wordpress: and Queersletter: a monthly-ish newsletter of queer art and affirmation.


From your interviewer:
HFE has been fun to get to know and I can’t wait to see what comes from possible submissions to 31 Tales! If you haven’t followed, please visit HTTP://twitch.tv/HFEProductions right now to fix that.
