I’m going to be nice this week and give you a short one. I’ve been giving longer challenges for what seems a long time now, and I figured those of you taking part in NaNoWriMo might enjoy the break a bit, seeing as we are just about halfway through the month. It’s already been a fairly long month, and I made the extremely smart (can you hear the sarcasm?) decision to do NaNo this month while trying to polish up my first novel for release only a little over a week into December. So in reality, I need a break too.
This week all I want you to do is write a one line story. Something simple to get the juices flowing, maybe even something you can use as a part of your actual novel. I won’t give you a genre this time, as that can sometimes be a bit of a hindrance more than a help, but I will tell you to make it as true to your story as you can possibly make it.
You have until noon (PST) on Friday, November 20th
Write the short story and post it on your blog, website, whatever you use to share your writing online and comment with a link to it here on this post so that everyone can find it. This is also open to anyone who wants to create a poem rather than a story. So if you’re more a poet than a storyteller, feel free to join in as well.
Go write an awesome story and get back here with your link!
