“Write a new short story every week. It’s not possible to write 52 bad short stories in a row.” – Ray Bradbury

The 52 short stories in 52 weeks challenge was brought back by Eva Deverell aka The Lady Writer. It sounded like a great idea to me. Just the kick I need to write every day.

The challenge is to read or write 52 Short Stories in 52 weeks. Don’t forget to click Eva’s link and read her shorts!

PLEASE NOTE: These stories may be posted in a rough state as my time might be limited. For stories that are rough, I do plan on editing them at some point. Any changes will be reflected in the index.
As of June 19, 2018, I am no longer posting my stories until final edits.
