So, which streamers have you visited? Did you find one that fits into your regular routine? I know many of our week centric writers find Author Brian Lou to be a great place to stop Saturday and Sunday morning. I know I’ve had fun in his stream. Hope to see you there!
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.

As a writer and a streamer, I can tell you following will be fun.
Brian is a graduate of the State University of New York at Oswego’s creative writing program. Books and the worlds they evoke have been a passion his whole life, and he has wanted to be a writer since the age of fourteen. Now two decades later, streaming his writing alongside others he’s found within the streaming writers community has provided him the motivation to finally pursue that dream.
Those twenty years did not pass idly by. In that time, he’s been attending regular writing workshops for practice and to keep sharp. One of those groups self-published an anthology of their work entitled “Zarf,” in which he is featured four times. Sci-fi and fantasy (or a mixture of the two) short stories are Brian’s genres of choice for his work.
He also creates poetry, typically done stream-of-consciousness. Some of his material is available through his Patreon, “The Loose Page.” Outside of writing, Brian is a board game enthusiast, avid LARPer, tabletop roleplayer, and occasional video gamer.
What do you write? Sci-fi and fantasy writing, or poetry
How long have you been streaming? Since November of 2020
How do you keep your viewers engaged? Sundays are dedicated to interactive writing sprints, where viewers are invited to join a voice chat and share what they wrote in those ten minutes.
What is your favorite thing about streaming? It keeps me accountable for my writing and has been a valuable source of motivation.
When can people find you on Twitch? Weekends – 10am-12pm EST
A Veteran with flair!
Brian has already made it through 31 short stories in 31 days – creating a story for the inaugural edition of 31 Tales that is both enjoyable and attention-catching for any scifi fan. He took on streaming our weekend shifts to help ensure those venturing into 31 short stories in 31 days have someone available at all times for support and interaction. He and his army of paper airplanes make the weekend fun for all writers.
