This is a challenge for all the writers out there. I propose a challenge whereby members choose ten random words - which members will submit one week before the challenge starts - for the purpose of writing a short story (minimum 5,000 words up to a maximum of 10,000 words), to do with as you will. You may post your short stories for feedback and critique's from other members of the forum. opcorn: You must have: Title: Author name or handle: Genre of story: Random words used: Word Count: (minimum 5,000 words up to a maximum of 10,000 words) listed at the top of your post if you wish other members to critique it. If you critique any of the stories that get posted, note that they will all be rough drafts and in need of serious work to be published - so don't be too harsh. :love: This is a fun exercise, don't take it seriously.:lol: There is no obligation to join this thread. I do ask that at least a few members submit their stories for review, to give members practice at critiquing other stories and also receiving critiques. The Random words will be chosen from the first ten members to offer their random words, to make it fair, only one random word from each of the first ten members will make it onto the list. I am now taking suggestions for Random Words (please make them Challenging). The challenge starts Saturday, so get your random words in before then. The purpose of this challenge is to get those creative juices flowing, stuck in a rut? Got writer's block? Procrastinating? Then, this challenge is for you. Kick start your imagination and get writing.
