You know what the best thing about a new year is? A fresh start! If you’ve never participated before or just thought about it, now’s the time to get started with #writeastorychallenge.
Not sure if you’re up to writing a story? No problem! Use the prompts for journal writing or free writing. Actually, all that’s required is that you have fun and keep on writing!
Join us in January as we write a story, once scene at a time!
How to Play #writeastorychallenge
Here’s how to you to play along for the Write A Story Challenge – January Edition:
- Each day use the prompt word and write one to three sentences that includes it. How you use the prompt in your scene is up to you!
- Post your newest scene to Instagram or to Facebook.
- Use the hashtag #writeastorychallenge.
- Tag us so we can cheer you on!
By the end of the month you’ll have a short story of approximately 1,000 to 1,500 words.
Wait! What if I don’t like that day’s prompt? No problem! Substitute it with one of the Bonus Words. But there’s a catch (isn’t there always): you can only substitute a daily prompt up to ten times without repeats.
Ready? Set. Write!
