In July 2010, a couple of writer friends and I opened the NaSty Writing Web. This website, complete with forums and profile pages, sets one theme every other month and invites writers to produce short stories, poems, songs, serials or whatever they want to write under said theme. It’s a month-long, no pressure challenge which mission is to encourage writers to get out of their comfort zone, provide an occasion for exposure and reinforce motivation with sheer fun.
This page compiles the short stories I wrote in the NaSty Writing Web’s context.
