Welcome to Erica Drayton Writes!
I’m glad you found my little corner of the Substack fiction universe. I hope you decide to subscribe, but first, let’s go over the many emails/posts that you’ll get:
First Edition [1st of the month] - Monthly updates on my writing journey.
A 100 Word Story [daily] - Every single day I write one 100 word story and share it. You can read them in less than :60 seconds.
Magicianary [mondays / paid subscribers only] - Weekly installments coming in 2024 about a world where magic and mystery are everywhere.
Editorials [wednesdays] - Sometimes writing-related and a lot of the time Substack related. But always, always, helpful.
Free Writing Fridays [fridays] - Weekly image/word prompts to write 100 word stories and share them in the comments section.
the list - A comprehensive list of all fiction Substack writers.
Erica Drayton Writes is a reader-supported publication. To receive 100 Word Stories daily and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.
CONSIDER A PAID SUBSCRIPTION
100 Word Stories are “archived” behind a paywall on the first day of the following month, except for the story from the 1st day. For example, on June 1st all May stories from the 2nd - 31st go behind a paywall.

UNLOCK ALL THE ARCHIVED 100 WORD STORIES
I don’t like putting my work behind a paywall which is why I do so after it’s sent to my Free Subscribers. However, you can help to UNLOCK those archived stories for those who can’t afford to upgrade and give them access to stories from previous months by becoming a paid subscriber.
I will unlock one month per 25 paid Monthly/Annual Subscribers or 10 Founding Member Subscribers.

PAY IT FORWARD
As I work hard every day to be an earning writer of fiction, it means more than just producing great content for you to read. I feel an obligation to pay it forward within my writing community in a way that wasn’t done for me during my times of self-doubt. Here’s my crazy idea, and how your paid subscription can help me turn my vision into a reality:
10 Monthly/Annual Subscribers = I will become a Paid Subscriber of 1 Substack.
5 Founding Members = I will become a Paid Subscriber of 3 Substacks.
Every 50 Paid Subscribers* = I will COMP 5 Paid Subscriptions to Subscribers for 1 year.
Every 100 Paid Subscribers* = I will COMP 1 Lifetime Paid Subscription to a Subscriber.
MY OTHER SUBSTACKS
I also have some other Substacks as well. No need to subscribe to them all, but if you’re interested in these things (the Oz series or Star Trek) then might I suggest:
