I got the idea from a friend (who did the same on one of her blogs) to share with you about all this writing I’ve been doing this month. Forward Motion has a ‘Story A Day’ challenge going for the month of May (you can pick your level, but I’m going for Insane, the actual story every day). You have to use a prompt for four out of five of them.

So far, I’ve kept up, twenty-five stories this month, and here they are:

  1. A treasure-hunter finds a small ally when she’s betrayed by her crew. (SF)
  2. A special delivery starts a son’s career through his father’s treachery. (historical fiction)
  3. The death of a woman through three different viewpoints, one of them her own. (historical fiction)
  4. Parody adventure through the jungle: swords, golden idols, and zombies! (comedy)
  5. One man’s very bad day. (SF)
  6. An thespian finds something belonging to his old love, and decides to change his life. (SF)
  7. A new star turns out to be sentient, unfortunately for the crew of the ship that pokes it. (SF)
  8. A spy betrays her mission and escapes, but not before becoming very rich. (dystopia/alternate universe)
  9. What might happen if one day the sun burnt out. (SF)
  10. A half-man, half-demon saves his people from slavery. (science fantasy)
  11. An immortal reminisces about a tourney a thousand years before. (SF)
  12. A mapmaker decides to help an old cobbler find his lost son. (historical fiction)
  13. An ad in the paper goes terribly wrong. (mainstream fiction)
  14. A hike up a mountain for a celebrity shoot shows a man’s true character. (mainstream fiction)
  15. A firefighter training session ends up a near-tragedy. (fantasy)
  16. A judge in the far future determines the disposition of vast wealth. (SF)
  17. A woman is given an inheritance of a house under the condition she live in it, but people she sees as family live there already. (mainstream fiction)
  18. Chained in a cavern, the one called Lucifer is freed by miners who can’t understand the warnings carved in the stone all around him. (I don’t know what this is… maybe alternate history? SF? Horror?)
  19. An old man obsessed with the twentieth century is the one voice of reason in a fascist nightmare. (SF/dystopia)
  20. Life and courage twenty generations into a seventy generation ride to Proxima Centauri. (SF)
  21. A man tells the story of how he stole his inheritance. (SF)
  22. Two oil drillers watch the last running oil rig on Earth run dry. (SF)
  23. The crown prince is poisoned, and his best friend must find the antidote before the prince dies. (fantasy)
  24. A woman must kill her father to save her people from annihilation. (SF)
  25. A little girl is kidnapped, but her kidnappers are on her side! (fantasy)

Six more days to go!
