Overview
Writing today has grown to be accessible to anyone who has the passion and drive to put a story out there. No longer is it limited to just the people with money and influence. With Amazon, a writer can self-publish their work for free. This doesn't mean one can simply copy and paste something from Wikipedia and put their name on it. Solid writing takes work and a steady routine to advance it to the next level. Not unlike going to the gym, if you just sporadically write only when you feel like it, you will develop about the same rate as you would if you just attended the gym on occasion. Think writing 30 stories in 30 days is easy? Well, the author did it It was far from easy, as life seems to pop up when you least expect it. The challenge concept was simple, "Write a story a day for 30 days and get individual attention daily by an acclaimed editor." I chose to participate and it was an incredible experience to actually develop a routine that is not only healthy and challenging, but fun at the same time Grace Black was my editor for the duration and gave infallible input throughout, which you will find inside this compilation Inside you will find: Each original story and the day number it was written. (I.E. Day 1- Deadly Holiday) Actual author comments, as to content development and creation for each The very first draft of each story, before reducing it to 101 words The submitted story The edited version, with input, corrections and suggestions Some of the editors acclaimed stories inside are: In a New York Minute- Being a successful detective can have its downside Second-Hand Smoke- Bumming a smoke gives a whole new meaning Art Appreciation- You just never know what you will come across at a garage sale Brick by Brick- An abandoned house never felt so much like a home Wish I May- Be careful what you wish for "
