Welcome to Erica Drayton Writes!
Updated for 2024
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.
Sleight of Hand [mondays / paid subscribers] - A world where magic and mystery are everywhere. Each week will be 2k - 3k words for about 40 weeks. The other 12 weeks will see short stories and flash fiction that also take place in the same world and serve to add to the world.
Pentober52 [wednesdays] must opt-in - Weekly emails containing prompts. Unlike Pentober in October you can write well over 100 words.
Free Writing Fridays [1st friday] - Image prompt to write 100 word stories and share them in the comments section. Also, add your 50 words to my 50 words to collaborate on a 100 word story with me.
Curio Fiction [monthly / paid subscribers] - Short stories that range from the bizarre to the deranged. Each story is sent in parts throughout the month. Under 10k words.
the list - A comprehensive list of fiction on Substack.
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.
100 WORD STORY SAMPLES
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 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 or 10 Founding Member/Annual Subscribers.
