Attention, all bloggers and/or writing enthusiasts.
I have a little creative writing challenge for you… purely for fun.
My challenge is simple.
Write a short story. I don’t care how short, or what kind of story, or even what form your story takes. BUT… your story, poem, dirty limerick or whatever you choose to do must incorporate within it in some way the following words;
If you accept this challenge, then write whatever you’d like incorporating those words into your tale, but do not publish right away!
No, once it is ready, please hold off on publishing it until next Wednesday, March 21st.
At that time, either publish it as a comment here, or publish it on your own website (if you have one) and leave a link in the comments here as to where we can find it.
I will publish my own on Wednesday as well, and no, it’s not even begun yet. I pulled those words entirely out of my butt, this is all fair and square.
I have a couple reasons why this sounded fun to me.
First, I’m following a lot of bloggers on my blogroll these days and every single one, yes you too Blackbear, just blow me away with the quality and imagination of their writing. I’d love to see if any of them would be willing to give this a try, and give me more of a chance to enjoy their writing.
Second, I repeatedly say that everyone has their own unique writing voice, their own way of crafting their distinctive thoughts into words. I often get people replying that it’s hard to recognise the difference in their own voice or viewpoint to what other people write. I agree that it can be hard to compare your own style with what other people might do… so I think it would be delightful to see all the different ways a common group of words can become something unique to each and every person out there.
What do you think. Sound fun?
Then go for it! Any length, any form, take those words as a seed and create something all your own!
