If you write one story, it may be bad; if you write a hundred, you have the odds in your favor.

I remember one famous writer saying they started out by deciding that if they wrote a short story every week, at least a few of them had to be worth reading :). I think it was Stephen King, but I’m not entirely certain of that.
Personally I find the idea of writing a readable short story in a week pretty daunting, I normally take at least that long to get a first draft done.

I write because pen and paper are cheaper than heroin and needles.
