#WriteAStoryChallenge – September 2017 Edition

Summers over, schools in session, and #writeastorychallenge is back! We’ve made some changes to the printables – hopefully, it’ll make it easier to use for everyone – but the rules are the same!

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!

The “official” guidelines & printables are at the end of the post.

Join us in September as we write a story, one scene at a time!

How to Play #writeastorychallenge

Here’s how to you to play along for the Write A Story Challenge – September Edition:

  1. Each day use the prompt word and write one to three sentences that include it. How you use the prompt in your scene is up to you!
  2. Post your newest scene to Instagram or to Facebook.
  3. Use the hashtag #writeastorychallenge.
  4. Tag us so we can cheer you on!

By the end of the month, you’ll have a short story of about 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!
