Story-A-Day Project

Starting on April 16th, 2009, I posted one story per day to this site. The original plan was to do that for an entire year, but as time went by I found myself falling further and further behind and feeling more than a little burnt out. I got back on schedule in time to hit the six month mark, and decided at that point to take a break... which I did not return from. I've posted a few stories since then and will continue to do so, but the Story-A-Day project is over. Still, six months isn't too bad.

Most were written fairly quickly and haven't had a lot of editing done, so the quality of the stories can be all over the map. I have to say there are quite a few I'm pleased with and one or two I'm even proud of, though of course the opposite end of the bell curve is represented as well. If you find yourself reading these and come across one that is almost good but needs help, please leave a comment. Some are so bad that they're not worth trying to fix, and that's okay.
