There's a new short story site called
. Each week, three writing prompts are posted. Writers are encouraged to come up with a story 250-1000 words long, using those three prompts.
Each author is given their own "blog" to which their stories are posted every week that they choose to submit one. The "blog" also includes optional links to the writer's personal blog, website, and a facebook page/profile, as well as a photo. All of this is done for free.
For example, you can find my CF "blog"
and Linda Boulanger's
. (We both lean towards romance, clean, of course, but we each have a few stories up that aren't romance.)
This is not a contest, just a writing exercise and opportunity for some feedback and encouragement. All genres are welcome and everyone's been keeping the stories pretty clean (I haven't read every story yet). However, there are definitely some stories that will appeal more than others. You don't have to be an author to participate, everyone's welcome to give the writing exercise a try.
Please stop by and check it out. If you have any questions, please ask, and I'll do my best to answer them.
Happy reading and writing!

Flagging a post will send it to the Goodreads Customer Care team for review. We take abuse seriously in our discussion boards. Only flag comments that clearly need our attention. As a general rule we do not censor any content on the site. The only content we will consider removing is spam, slanderous attacks on other members, or extremely offensive content (eg. pornography, pro-Nazi, child abuse, etc). We will not remove any content for bad language alone, or being critical of a particular book.
