Today is my birthday (well, really the whole month *wink*wink*), SOOOO it only makes sense to have my monthly WIP writing challenge be inspired by a birthday theme!! If you’re a writer and you’d like to join in, it’s super easy. Just take the characters from your WIP (Work In Progress) and plug them into a BIRTHDAY BASH scene/short story. Something apart from your book, but that really lets their personalities shine!
For July I hosted the scene of PRODIGAL RETURN, and it was so much fun to write! I was joined by the Cosistories blog with a very engaging, must read scene! Go check it out!!
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.
