"Scott Walker's Daily Story Seeds are contagious flights of fancy, perfect pick-me-ups for when the imagination is lagging. Discovering the original factual inspirations for each seed is almost as much fun as reading the stories. Almost, but not quite."
— Alexis Niki, story consultant and filmmaker
What Are Daily Story Seeds?
Daily Story Seeds are tiny narratives, often with elements of the fantastical but inspired by real-world online articles and videos. Ranging from dark to funny to whimsical, every story is a seed of truth firmly rooted in our current world.
For three months in 2015, I wrote one each day. By the end I had over ninety story seeds, and this sampler collection contains some of my favorite ones.
More Praise for Daily Story Seeds
"Chefs always talk about the search to create 'the perfect bite' - the single mouthful that encompasses the entire experience of a dish - Scott Walker's Daily Story Seeds deliver a perfect bite of fiction, every day."
— Gareth-Michael Skarka, game designer and writer
"I love Daily Story Seeds! Like any gardener knows, not all seeds sprout; many I keep in a file marked 'clever amusement.' Then there's one, or two–no, three–that find fertile soil in my mind membranes, take root, and blossoms into an actual creative project. It happened to me, it can happen to you, too."
— Aaron Vanek, writer and game designer
