Love you, Hobart. I read this post and exclaimed, “This means Short Story Month is officially real!”
Hey guys, I know some of you out there like writing stories:
Story a Day May is a writing challenge where you write short stories. Short, long, or really short, as long as they are stories; beginning, middle, end.
There’s a community on the site where you can post your stories and receive feedback if you choose to and if you sign up there will be prompts to help you going every day. The first day’s writing prompt by none other than Neil Gaiman, by the way.
If you prefer to post about your progress here rather than there, the tag to use is /storyaday
What are you waiting for! Sign up! Start writing!
A rather brilliant way to build writing prompts customized just for you:

This is the kind of person who was always destined to be a writer.
Did it make you smile? Maybe you’re a writer too…
