The seventh edition of What Will You Write? has come to a close. I’d like to thank Peggy for the prompt and our lone participant for joining. I think we all know who the winner is.
I’d like to mention that What Will You Write? is going on hiatus again. But this time it’s due to NaNoWriMo, which starts in a month. A lot of people will be preparing for it and won’t have much time for flash fiction challenges like this. We’ll be back in December, though! Not only will we be back, but we’ll have some changes in store. Hopefully, these changes will encourage more participation in the challenge.
The post with the winning entry will be up later this weekend when Peggy has her part written up. She may only be judging one entry, but she has to say why it’s good. Look for it soon.
That’s right. What Will You Write? #7 is being extended for another week again. I’m trying to figure out if there’s a pattern. Maybe some prompts are too difficult? Just so you know, it doesn’t have to be a long story. 1000 words is the maximum. You can make it as little as 100 if you like. This should help anyone who wants to attempt the challenge.
Anyway, the challenge is extended until October 3rd, 3 pm GMT.
I’m extending the deadline for What Will You Write? #7 by a week. So, the new due date will be September 26th at 3 pm GMT. Why? Only one submission.
What I’d like you to do is get the word out. If you know anyone who likes to write and do flash fiction, let them know about this challenge. If anyone has any ideas about how we can get the word out about this challenge better, let me know in the comments.
The fifth installment of What Will You Write? is now closed. So from now on, Tara will judge and tell me who she chooses as the winner and why.
The sixth installment will start after judging is complete, and the theme will be chosen by Tara, if she wishes, as she won two in a row!
Thanks to everyone who joined, and I hope you’ll return and more of you from the past will join as well.
This is just a 24 hour notice of the deadline of What Will You Write? #5. Go here for all the information you need for the challenge.
This will mark the first time that someone else does the judging. So, I hope Tara Southwell enjoys reading and judging!
In the beginning, I’d intended on doing What Will You Write? only twice a month. After the success of the first one, I started the next one shortly after. In the end, doing it too often isn’t a good thing. So, I’m going back to my original plan of twice a month.
So, this means that the current challenge is extended by a week! That’s right. You have a lot more time and a better chance of writing a quick story. So, no pressure. Relax and enjoy!
So, if you still want to participate, then by all means, give it a try. The new deadline is 3 pm GMT on June 29th.
The fourth What Will You Write? will be ending in about 24 hours. I’m pretty sure Tracey wants to see plenty of stories based on her prompt. There’s still time for you to submit, if you’re able.
On this topic, with the decline in submissions recently, I’m thinking that doing one challenge every two weeks may result in more submissions. Let me know what you think in the comments.
