Streaking — that is, doing an activity every single day for long stretch of time — is quite popular in the running world.
Beyond National Novel Writing Month, though, we weren’t aware of it taking off in the literary world.
Enter Australian father Matt Zurbo, who’s writing a children’s story every single day, as a gift to his daughter ... while also working a day job.
The New York Times has a fascinating profile of this ambitious fellow, who was no stranger to literature prior to this — having published novels, an oral history of Australian-rules football, and several children’s books.
While Zurbo doesn’t have plans to publish his final collection, you can certainly read his three hundred-plus stories right now and follow him as he enters the home stretch.
