It’s time for another challenge, and this time, we have another guest. This one is a bit different, though. Tara Southwell is the guest, and she’s even judging!
What Will You Write? is a series of writing challenges that I am posting every two weeks. How it works is, I post the beginning of a scene and give you the genre or theme. You finish the scene and post it on your blog. Please read the challenge page for more information and past winners. The rules are simple:
- First, read what I’ve written (or in this case, the guest).
- Second, copy it and finish writing the scene. Please keep your portion of the writing at less than 1,000 words.
- Then, post your story to your blog.
- Make sure you link back to this post so others can come and join in.
- Make a post in the comments below with a link back to your post (it’s likely that if you use WordPress, there’ll be a pingback, but please leave a comment with the link nevertheless).
The deadline is about 14 days from today. Let’s make that 3:00 pm GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) on August 17th.
After the deadline, Tara will read all of the entries and decide on who she thinks wrote the best scene. Once she’s decided, I’ll post the winning story with a link back to the writer’s original post. After that, I’ll include links back to everyone else’s entry so you can see what everyone wrote. The winner will have the opportunity to write their own prompt and be a guest judge if they want.
I’ll let Tara explain what’s going on with this prompt, so read the following:
The fifth installment of What Will You Write? is here, and rather than make a submission, I’m making a prompt! I decided that, since everyone’s style is different, I prefer to give a more general prompt instead of a prompt that’s meant to be used verbatim. And since I can’t seem to use the verbatim prompts, I thought it might be a little hypocritical lol.
Just write a story, 1,000 words or less, which includes one character taking a small object out of their pocket and saying, “It’s time to shake things up a bit.” Any genre, any type of character, as long as they have pockets.
I can’t wait to judge the entries. Good luck everybody 😀
So, there you have it. Good luck everyone!
And I will be participating, that is if Camp NaNoWriMo lets me.
