52 Stories in 52 Weeks

Doggone it—I need to do something to get back into the swing of writing practice. And yesterday, while browsing the NaNoWriMo forums, I rediscovered a challenge inspired by a quote from Ray Bradbury, to write 52 short stories in 52 weeks, the idea being that it would be impossible to write 52 bad short stories in a row. I’m not a big fan of short stories, but maybe this is just the thing I need to get back into the swing of daily writing practice. So—

I hereby challenge myself to write 52 short stories in 52 weeks in 2017! I will post weekly updates on my progress on each story, and on the challenge in general. I will use a mixture of word/phrase/sentence prompts and picture prompts. I have a whole year’s worth already, but I welcome other suggestions for this and other writing practice!
