August is over. What does that mean? Out with the old writing challenge and in with a new one. Last month, I asked writers to answer, ‘Where did I come from?’ in the form of a creations story.
Ozlem Yikici joined in on that challenge with her story entitled Once-upon-a-time…
September is here and for this month I am challenging you to go back to school. I can feel some of you cringing at the mere thought. Yes, I know for some of us the mention of school has us running to the phone to book an appointment with a therapist. If that is the case, use it in your writing. You can write about primary, secondary or even university. You can do it from any point of view such as a child, teacher, janitor or even an adult student. The story can be in any genre, so if there were zombies in your high school and you want to share that with us, go for it.
- Make sure your story takes place in a school.
- Keep it to roughly 500 words (although if you need more that is okay too).
- Post your story in the comments section below so we know where to find it.
- The deadline is the last day of September.
- Have fun!
I also want to mention that I will be participating in Voice Week from September 26th through September 30th. It is a great challenge to help writers like myself experiment with voice in our writing. It is an open challenge so if you want to take part click on the link and check it out.
