Spring has sprung! There’s something about this time of year that just shouts road trip!! Maybe it’s because (most) everyone has been so cooped up over the winter, so as soon as the sun begins to shine we just want to GO! Somewhere, anywhere, aside from our couches. So for April’s writing challenge, I’m going to run with a ‘ROAD TRIP’ as a scene/short story challenge to plug the characters from your WIP (work in progress) into. It’s meant to be a fun way to introduce your characters, so take them somewhere wonky, and give them (as well as your readers) a trip to remember!
HOW IT WORKS
As the initiator: Every month I’ll give a real time circumstance, hang out spot, or every day situation. I’ll post the exact scene/challenge the first week of every month.
As an Author/challenge joiner: All you need to do is use the characters from your WIP (work in progress), or even a published works, and plug them into the given scene for a short story style post. It can be funny, serious, deadly, really just whatever you want as long as it’s true to your characters (as in, what they would actually do in this situation)!! It’s a fun way to be creative with those personalities that you as their creator love so much. It’s also a fun way to introduce them to the world and your blogs, without giving away your plots and twists… Just pure ‘meet my characters, and get to know their personalities’ separate from their book.
How we work together as Authors and the Initiator: I’ll do my own scene/challenge post on the very last day of the month (that way I can be sure to link in every joiner, and you can do your posts at your own leisure). Write your scene’s anytime you wish, at any point of the month. All that I need is your final challenge post link. You can give it to me in any comment, or even link me into your post so that it’ll pop in my news feeds! So simple!
(If you do just link me in to your own posts, then make sure you use a regular blog post to link me in with, rather than my blog’s home page, that won’t actually give me a notification. I don’t want to skip anyone over! This particular post is ideal, but do your own thing.)
