Do you call yourself a writer, yet feel you're a fraud because you've never finished anything, let alone achieved publication?

Is there a nagging voice inside your head telling you to give up because you'll never nail this 'writing thing?'

I was once you.

Within 52 Stories in 52 Weeks, you will find a culmination of a 52-week journey I commenced on July 31st, 2017.

The basis for this experiment was at the suggestion of Ray Bradbury who recommended that all beginning and intermediate writers follow this 'writer's hygiene' program, because there's just no way you can write 52 bad stories in a row.

Here, I present all 52 stories along with a journal of the process behind each one. Also included are general lessons I've learned that I hope will turn struggling writers into prolific writers.
